Nasa TV Mars landing
Mars rover lands at 1:20 AM. If you're up that late it should be interesting to watch.

You can watch it at NASA TV.

I tried to stay up and ended up dozing through about half the landing. Damn impressive, though. We just landed a small car on another planet using rockets, jets, a parachute and a sky crane.

I caught it... very impressive.

Sad to say that it's so rare to see such accomplishments from our under-funded space program these days, not too many people seem to notice or pay attention anymore.

NASA needs to start covering the olympics. Lands a rover on Mars with only 15 minutes of delay - NBC shows sporting events across the pond with 5 hours of delay.

For those of us with thinning or graying hair we grew up with John Glenn, Gus Grissom, Alan Shephard and a monkey or two orbiting the planet. Then we had Ed Whites space walk, Apollo lifting off and docking and then Neil Armstrong descending a ladder to the moons surface. Big stuff for elementry school and Jr. high students.

I can remember, naively walking to very early grade school (when parents werent concerned with sex pervs swiping your kid) looking up at the sky and wondering when the Mecury capsule with said monkey or astronaut would fly over head. Was accustomed to an occasional prop air liner flying over to O'Hare and couldnt imagine why they would fly over my neighborhood.

Sat in our living room with 4 other families (30 people) watching on our black and white Armstrong and later Aldrin stomp around on the moon.

Parents took my out of school to downtown Chicago for a ticket tape parade honoring White and Grissom for their Gemini capsule trip where White became the first human to walk in space. Got a front curb seat and I can remember the tall buildings casting their shadows, the cool air, all the hub bub of the confetti streaming down and White and Grissom sitting on the back of a Mustang convertible waving to all around.
White's deed was special but liked Gus so much named our first German shorthair pointer Gus.

Moved to Georgia in '81. I distinctly remember reading a National Geographic that had on it's cover the Viking Lander (on Mars) with pics of the red soil. Having moved to middle Georgia, their red clay/soil seemed the spitting image.
