So, that's where they're hiding... Welp, the invasion should be any day, now.

Best version of the story, I think:

The kid who named it was on there earlier and she had a, I shit you not, bedazzled 'Mars Science Laboratory' t shirt. She wins.

I am not sure how big I thought these rovers were but when they said that this current one was as big as a small car my mind was simply blown! I mean, to land that perfectly on a planet we have never physically been too is... well I love NASA.

I honestly can't wait to see the pictures.

I was soooooooooo nervous about the complicated landing they were trying this time, as opposed to the simpler (though certainly not simple) "bounce" landings of the previous two Mars landers.

What a kick-ass triumph.

OKay so were the harpoons supposed to fire when it landed the first time or before they hit and pull it in?

They are going to try to "bounce" the lander to a spot with sunshine to recharge it. So nervous!

Or Dawn's visit to Ceres...

I think this applies to quite a few threads in the forums lately. Not sure what happened, but activity here just dropped off the charts like a mime miming in front of a pack of blind people.
