Success! Curiosity Mars lander arrives precisely on schedule
Perfection still possible – thanks, Yanks
Curiosity Mars mission | Pics NASA's Curiosity Mars lander settled down on the Red Planet as scheduled, no problems, thank you ma'am, nothing to worry about ... oh, what is it? a quarter of a billion miles from here or so?
Nice job, mates.
A news conference is being held as we post this note, but we thought you might enjoy a few images from the live feed before that momentous and deservedly self-congratulatory event concludes:
Happy, maybe? Many years of preparation culminates in a moment of exultation and relief
Y'know, few of us puny humans will ever enjoy such a moment of celebratory togetherness (or such bland uniforms)
Yes, that's the shadow of the rover Curiosity in the image on the left – nice...
Hmm... Another indication of which OS is preferred by The Best and the Brightest™
Congratulations too for the BBC who have finally found something more important than the Olympics to headline on their news site.
Saw it live from NASA
I subverted the digital signage in the Lobby to show the NASA feed instead of adverts so everyone in the building could watch.
Gold Medal to the NASA team!
This is what science and engineering are all about. Centuries of astronomy, maths, and engineering. Bloody marvellous! More inspirational than the Olympics.
