Curiosity has Landed

In what can only be described as an amazing landing the JPL / NASA team, and all their partners pulled it off, and we now have a new Rover “Curiosity” sitting on the planet Mars..

Not only that but the very first images shot through a filter that was protecting the camera lense, was nothing less than a confirmation that the team has just landed a rover as big as a SUV on the Red Planet safely and ready to start collecting science.

I have to say, I was just about jumping out of my chair during the 7 minutes of terror which turned out to be less terror with the continuous stream of data relayed from Odyssey.  Congratulations to the team and we look forward to years of science.
