If anyone doubts we are in the singularity: 116 years ago was the first powered flight of the Wright Flyer. Today we had the first powered flight...on another planet. And that Martian helicopter contained a little swatch of the Flyer's original fabric.

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
