Today’s update will be short, because I’m still geeking out. For those who are not aware, today we landed another rover on Mars.

Curiosity’s front hazecam checking out the horizon of Mars!

Well will you look at that. I can’t really say how exciting this is. All I can tell you is that this is beautiful, and if you watched the command team throughout the entire ordeal, when Curiosity entered the Martian atmosphere, when parachute deployment was successful, and when the six wheels of the rover touched Martian soil – man. That was emotional. I don’t think I could even begin to imagine the stress the whole command crew had to go through just for those short seven minutes.

If anybody’s interested in learning more about the whole Martian mission, be sure to follow Mars Curiosity’s Twitter profile.
