Mars Rescuse Challenge & Bredth/Depth/Best first approaches.

I'm sitting here watching Garden State and trying to figure out Frank Buß's Mars Rescue challenge; kinda bummed especially after Prashant solved Einstein Riddle way faster than I did. It was like 15-20 minutes! Only if they give ignoble prizes for this! Bravo Prashant, you're the man.

The Mars rescue challenge has been in news: Yahoo News: CMP Media's Dr. Dobb's Journal Launches Programming Challenge: Professional Programmers Challenged to Solve Mars Rescue Mission So is DARPA's Grand Challenge; either science is going mainstream or I'm just reading things at wrong places.

That’s a cool link I saw, thought should share:
