A few hours ago I watched some incredible video from London as various sporting events took place. About a minute ago I watched an image from Mars as the Curiosity Rover touched down! Holy shit! That was an incredible 30 minutes of video that I had just watched! Those magnificent bastards at the JPL pulled it off! That was freaking incredible! I was so happy to have stayed up to watch that. I had tears in my eyes as the whole thing unfurled in near real time. Congrats to all of the wonderful geeks at NASA!
