Curiosity Lands on Mars

And more importantly, it isn't broken.

It was really cool watching the landing live. Everyone at JPL Mission Control was going insane. I get the feeling that many life-long dreams were fulfilled today.

So happy the elaborate landing mission was a success. Can't wait to see some cool pictures and hear about what Curiosity finds on the surface.

I've been following this mission obsessively. Can't wait to see some of the high-res images it sends back.

I'm also really looking forward to great things from this... as Mars is probably the only planet that our generation will be remotely near able to explore...
