I was pumped last night when it ws landing and I think I would have had a heart attack if it had failed.

I almost can't stand waiting for the pics. I mentioned it to five people while I was out today and not one of them even knew about it.  All were really intersted after i told them.

Is it just me? This thing can shoot x-rays and lasers and has a nuclear engine and 3D cameras.  It's awesome.

I was also bummed to see that awhile back you could have had your name etched on the microchip inside Curiosity.

Argh! I missed it.

LOL, I saw those guys performing down across Westlake Center in Seattle. Fun performance.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe...laser beams glittering in the dark near the Gale Crater gate.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.

Or the case of lasers, "time to fry".

On a slightly sadder note, apparently one of the two wind sensors on Curiosity is broken!!!

I am a leaf on the wind...and in space, no one can hear ice scream.
