How appropriate that during the 2012 Olympics NASA has landed the heaviest and most complex science vehicle ever built on Mars. After a 3 year trip, Curiosity landed safely and has already sent back low resolution pictures of its local neighborhood. High resolution shots will follow next week after a mast is deployed. http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/06aug_success/
Congratulations to the NASA engineering team and all the men and women of NASA who worked on the mission so far. You've won gold!
