"Kraken" in Real Life

Recommended Posts

Stumbled upon this Wiki page:

The challenge, complexity and length of Mars missions make it likely that failures can occur. The high failure rate of missions launched from Earth attempting to explore Mars was informally called the "Mars Curse" or "Martian Curse".[89] The phrase "Galactic Ghoul" or "Great Galactic Ghoul", referring to a fictitious space monster that subsists on a diet of Mars probes, was coined in 1997 by Time Magazine journalist Donald Neff, and is sometimes facetiously used to "explain" the recurring difficulties.
