On Wednesday, the European Space Agency sought to become the second entity to successfully land a spacecraft on Mars with its Schiaparelli lander.
USA/NASA has had many successful landers and the Soviets had a lander survive for 14.5 seconds after touch down. That's not great, but considering the ESA lander lost contact after firing the retro rockets before touch down, I wouldn't celebrate just yet.
How do I get LinuxPay to work on my Android device?

Who knows that E-Bay has the most optimal solution for online auctions sites? Maybe there is something else to be learned? The only way you kick the huge guys like E-Bay off center is to innovate around them. The problem is that innovation is not always successful, often it isn't, but that's what makes this whole thing keep working.
No argument here. I'm sure some scrappy little startup with a great idea will innovate eBay into obsolescence. However, Facebook is NOT a scrappy little startup and leveraging your success in one area to try and force your way into another area is NOT innovation, it's desperation. It's the same reason why Google will never have a successful social network (unless they buy one and even then, they risk destroying it by "integrating" it into the Google "ecosystem"), and Microsoft will never have a successful search engine.
Obviously we must place the starting brackets in the function definition as you have done, because:
1) if the bracket starts on the following line then it might accidentally line up in the same column with the closing bracket and make the code block too easy to visually identify.
2) there is a world-wide shortage of carriage returns and they must be carefully rationed.
