Funny fact about ENT's theme song: It was actually borrowed form the credits of "Patch Adams."

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

Also...someone getting a talking to later today I reckon for the mega loud "HOLY ****!!!" haha.
We got photos back from Mars faster than it takes my cellphone to email a 3MB picture on a 4G network lol Incredible!

Been following the entire landing from the NASA livestream. Well done NASA and JPL!

A gem from a Facebook contact - "I never thought watching a bunch of people at computers talking into headsets could be so exciting."

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots

Something came to my mind while watching all of this...most of the NASA crowd at the Star Trek Convention will not be there for obvious reasons.

-------------------------------

2:15am Eastern should be the post landing conference.

If you have not already, check out this! http://eyes.nasa.gov/ Make sure to turn off "LIVE" mode and check out the virtual video from 10:20-10:31 PM PDT. WOW! JPL did an amazing job with that web app.
