“Curiosity” Lands Safely on MARS!
August 6th, 2012
Now THAT is something that didn’t get their by itself. Congratulations to all at NASA!
Meanwhile, Iran will send up a monkey in a rocket.
Where’s the kaboom?
Just watched the landing and it was great. I remember watching one of the rovers land years ago and I think the same guy that did the play-by-play for that landing also did todays. Congratulations to NASA and all their people for an exceptional job well done.
“You didn’t land that”…
Curiosity lands successfully, in spite of Obama!
Awesome! Watched it live and just about cheered right along with the NASA guys… Five bucks says everyone at the JPL is gonna be kneewalking drunk by morning. Huge step forward for our space program.

It’d be better if 0bama and moo were in it
Forgot to add, huge congratulations to the guys and ladies at NASA. Watching the news briefing now.
NYT’s Monday Morning Headline:
Obama Landings Rover on Mars
“there” – yikes!
I’m sure obama will attribute this success to NASA’s new moooslim outreach.

Why send another rover to Mars? Is NASA expecting to find muzloids there to outreach to?
“President Barack Obama tweeted his appreciation: “I congratulate and thank all the men and women of NASA who made this remarkable accomplishment a reality.”
What a dick.

Ex-president Obama and former senator Bill Nelson, Fake astronaut, will be boarding the next Soyuz space flight from Planet Hollywood to Uranus.
Seriously, thanks to the engineers at NASA for giving America back some pride.
I will admit to being skeptical about the system and likelyhood of success. Glad I was wrong. Congrats Nasa. You slide rule guys rock.
Two thumbs up, NASA. We respect the engineering and planning that went into this journey. Next time, take Obama with you. It’s the only way we’re gonna get rid of him. Some of my friends don’t think he’ll leave even when voted out of office.
Millions of Martian cats are fleeing in terror.
I understand both WalMart and Chick-Fil-A want to open outlets there.
And bi-curious lands in Harry Reids backyard. That’s what I hear anyway.
How soon will it be habitable?
weheell.. looks like they got over that whole pesky metric-to-english-to-muslim conversion problem opportunity that cost several hundred million dollars
I think it is important to point out that the control room consoles for EDL were manned last night by students from Cal Tech who are studying different aspects of Engineering and Aerospace technology as part of their curriculum.
NASA sponsors the Jet Propulsion Laboratory but it is run by the California Institute of Technology. Imagine being one of those young people in that room last night, and having this successful landing on your transcripts and in your resume. This was as big of a technological step, and in some ways bigger, than the first manned landing on the moon.
Keep an eye open for some incredible pictures soon. The descent camera on the bottom of the rover was supposed to take 5 frames per second for about the last 2 minutes of the descent after the heat shield popped off. Should be an incredible sequence to see….
