Edit - It's the 9th of August now and pictures are coming in on a daily basis. Check this thread daily! ------------------------------------- I've been waiting for this for months. This rover is as big as a compact car, has HD video cameras on it, and not to mention a myriad of other scientific instruments (high resolution microscope, spectrometers, etc). The thing is so big that they're using a different system to land it. Let's hope it makes it! I will be glued to NASA TV on Sunday. (Update - landed perfectly!) The Rover is due to land in the Gale crater (it's just chillin there right now) - which they think was a lake at one point. Here's the official site of the rover with a countdown (3 days and 1 hour from this post): Space, Stars, Mars, Earth, Planets and More - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Edit: That site now contains all of the images and will keep receiving more.) Interesting times! Who else loves the red planet and can't wait to see its first HD images of the surface (there were other nice images from rovers, but these are going to be even better)? That's assuming it even lands without fucking up! (It didn't fuck up!) I hope it lands ok... It should. We'll all see soon enough! (I said it landed OK, ass-clown!) Curiosity rover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Another edit: This is EXACTLY how I watched it land - the way this guy had his windows and screen set up with the telemetry program and the live feeds (I had two running, he had one): [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhUbu2GTIv8&feature=g-hist[/ame] Watch in HD! It was amazing to have that same program running that Mission Control had running on their screens!
