I just finished watching the Livestream of the Curiosity landing. NASA, JPL, and everyone who made it a possibility should be damned proud of themselves. I just want to put it in perspective. They landed a nuclear powered rover the size of a small car on a planet 154 million miles away, by lowering it on a crane, suspended from a spaceship that took 8 months to get where it was going.
If you don’t think that’s the coolest thing in the world, you’re an idiot.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
