Now we know where Curiosity goes after it kills cats... maybe it'll find an ancient alien archive warning us about an armageddon caused by a machine race that wipes out anything that's not a machine...

In all seriousness maybe it'll tell us why Mars has patches of a magnetic field instead of the one Earth has. And one can only hope they're working on a rover to send to Venus...

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).
I no it was and my 350+ transformer figures no it too

Just looked at the tech video posted on Gizmodo.

This lander looks like something from Starship Troopers! The complexity is Gundam-like, even.

Mankind has come a long way from Apollo capsules in barely half a century.

1) Martians

2) A half buried Shadow vessel

3) Transformers

4) Prothean tech

5) John Carter

6) Dr. Manhattan

7) Elvis

Im not surprised STO has decided to not show any fanfair over this historic event. Even when one consideres what this means and the steps mankind takes for space exploration. Even China said good game NASA....
