    Anyone staying up late tonight to see if it will be a lander or a crater?

    Its only 1pm here so I can follow along without looking too geeky.

    Usually Curiosity kills the cat. In this case, CATastrophe has a 2 in 3 chance of killing Curiosity. I can wait until tomorrow for the results...sleep is a valuable commodity.

    thanks for the links Brian. Figures TimeWarnerCable wants more $$ to view that channel.
    thinks i'm going to definitely call it a night however after touchdown. I'm amazed to the video and appreciate you sharing the links :)

    Here's a geek factoid. They didn't know it was successful until 14 minutes after it had landed. It takes that long for radio waves to travel that vast distance.

    I have that same lag issue talking to my wife.
    She'll tell me to do something and 14 minutes later something will hit the back of my head and the message then becomes clear.

  15. 2.5 billions dollars is allot of coin, but i'd rather see it go here than killing desert dwellers....
