I recall lambasting the shit out of this idea when goobster first shared the JPL paper in what? 2001?

Granted, they were aiming for Titan in 2007, not Mars in 2020 and "autonomous hovering drone" back in 2001 wasn't exactly softball-sized...

2001, you are correct

I've been accused of having a rapacious memory, but you take the cake. Thanks for reminding me of this.
