Curiosity has landed

This morning NASA successfully landed the 1 ton, car sized Curiosity rover on Mars. And I watched the images come in live. from Mars. I watched a live feed from MARS!

The level of technological advancement we are living with is truly staggering. It boggles my mind. Do you realise the distances involved? The level of ingenuity that went into the landing? Curiosity was attached to a flying platform for entry into the atmosphere and was then lowered to the ground by nylon threads.

I find it difficult to comprehend the mind that come up with that concept, and then work out how to make it work. Unbelievable.

Well done to the entire NASA team. Thank you for showing us that the human race is still capable of amazing feats.
