B Nagy: We proudly announce the mission was successful - we fucked up a few billion euros of our taxpayers again! Highaltitudefive! :D

Chas: Pure science fiction....

Jonee Tiedemann: It´s gonna be called SCHITAPARATELLI from now on. Rest in pieces.

Mahesh M: ESA needs to take in Indian engineers from ISRO

Guy Hellier: The Martians shot it down...obviously.

Ed A: Martians... this means war
