Curiosity Goes for the Gold!

The Olympics are fun but the real big event tonight will be the rover Curiosity's landing on Mars.  
What an amazing machine!   The Atlantic has a collection of photos guaranteed to get you psyched for the descent to Mars and the exploration that will follow.  Fingers crossed!

  1. Bill,

    I have read on one of the local websites here in Germany that the new rover has marks in its wheels that continuously spell the acronym "JPL" in the Mars sand in Morse code! How cool is that!

    I insist that the next thing that goes up there has a ham radio beacon on board (JT65E - E for Extraterrestrial)
