Well, of course, Curiosity would on Mars in any event. But it’s down, it’s alive, and it seems to be in the right location. The 14 minute delay period was quite intense! I knew the lander was down, but the signals that revealed its fate were still in transit. It’s a big freakin’ solar system out there!
Just to add to the fun, we’ve even got a shot of Curiosity on its way down to the surface.
On a completely different note, don’t forget the upcoming Perseids. There have been a few early Persieds this year, so keep your eyes peeled.
