I thought they were, like, cat sized

size reference

How is this such a common misconception? I’ve had this exact same question asked to me by campers at work. Is it because of Sojourner’s brief cameo in The Martian?

I literally know that they’re car-sized, and yet my brain always starts by assuming that they’re all Sojourner’s size before I manually scale up the image.
