Not so long ago humanity hit an incredible milestone: we landed a robot on Mars and it took video of the planet's surface from a first-person perspective. We had R2D2's happy snaps of an alien world! It looked like the Australian outback, but wrong. All purple skies and utter vacancy. Personally I was entralled just by the rocks, rocks which had lain there for thousands of years, while down on Earth we were busy having history.
But no, that's not the focus here. The focus is that when the Mars landing happened, it was relegated to a sidebar on page three of most of the newspapers, while Paris Hilton's feud with Nicole Richie was headline material.
