So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

The Invasion begins......again.

Be interesting what Curiosity will discover with her better equipment and if she will live as long as her cousins (1 is still going).

Best tweet of the night about it: "@Satire - If @MarsCuriosity had the forethought to install @foursquare it would totally be the Mayor of Mars."

Also, @LarryNemecek's: "For all you kids who didn't get to sit through Mercury, Gemini or an Apollo moon landing, THIS moment is for you! #MarsCuriosity GO!"

That was an amazing landing. I was practically holding my breathe with those guys when waiting for confirmation.

Those pictures are incredable, and to see them shown live and cleared up so fast was just amazing. Still watching the live feed now.

It's good to see that one of the last tools from the former version of NASA was a great success! Lets hope this pushes more NASA growth to what it once was and beyond.

Also...someone getting a talking to later today I reckon for the mega loud "HOLY ****!!!" haha.

Actually it was based off of "past" rovers. Haha we stil have until 2014 for when Transformers 3 occurs (seeing that Sam was out of at least 4 years of college).

That was awesome to watch unfold! Time delayed only a bit. But as close feeling like being on Mars as I'm going to get. I'm so happy for JPL and NASA.
