Historic Mars Landing
Seeing the NASA team’s reaction to the news that Curiosity had landed successfully on Mars sent shivers down my spine. Because I shared their joy but also because it proved once again what our species is capable of when at it’s best.
When I saw Curiosity’s first pictures the reality of what thousands of people from around the globe have accomplished became so much more visceral and real. We have landed a semi autonomous car sized robot laboratory capable of searching for life, on another planet.
How long before we stand on that planet? I’m betting not long at all.
