Not only is the Mars rover Curiosity an incredible feat of scientific achievement, it is also a cheeky little bastard who flirts with pop stars on Twitter.

Britney Spears sent a tweet to Curiosity asking it if Mars looked the same as it did when she visited the planet to shoot her music video for “Oops…I Did it Again” in 2000 (everyone remembers that red pleather jumpsuit).

Curiosity responded to Spears using a term of endearment and said that Mars is ok, but that he would also like a present, though the tweet has since been removed — perhaps he didn’t want Christina Aguilera to find out that he cyber-flirts with her rival. It’s just a working theory.
