If anyone is interested on how it will land on Mars here is a cool animation of it
And in honour of Curiosity's brethren let us remember the fallen. http://xkcd.com/695/
I guess it's no Apollo but I'm still pretty excited to watch some space work getting done.
I hope they release the viewer statistics. I would love to see how many people across the world watched this.
It says on the UStream, 1188 currently watching 15872 total.
@Video_Game_King: I think because the previous rovers have been smaller than this one. This one is about the size of a Mini Cooper from what I hear.
@Video_Game_King: The rover is much much bigger, about as big as an SUV. It's basically a rolling laboratory, so data is going to be much better.
Great job NASA. I'm pretty proud to have witnessed this, in whatever way.
It better have played "America Fuck Yeah" when it landed if it's the size of an SUV.
