The Curiosity rover has landed on Mars, intact, on schedule, and is sending back images!
I think this might be the moon landing of my generation. I mean, we accurately sent a robot through space for eight months, pretty much lowered it onto a different planet via a sky crane, and now we can see what it sees? My god. Good job, humans. Good job.
(Didn’t stay up to watch the landing? Check out the NASA JPL site for all the details. Curiosity’s Twitter stream is pretty cute, too.)
