That is definitely one of the coolest things that I've seen before......I've been looking forward to it for several weeks.

'bout a half-hour left. Anyone wanna make any predictions? She gonna land and send us some nice color pics of Mars or she gonna crash and break. I took my daughter to the Houston Space Center a few months back and I remember them talking about this rover. It's got a much better camera (HD color and all that) and there's a penny fixed to the platform right in front of the camera to have a point of reference as to the size of the different objects it photographs.

Also to see what happens to a penny on Mars.

The first picture they posted looks like the death star lol
Dude! I SAW that! heh!

Y'all need to follow the rover on Twitter

First pervy tweet from Mars :
I'm safely on the surface of Mars. GALE CRATER I AM IN YOU!!!

One of it's wheels....kinda thought this bitch would have a better camera. What's up with that? EDIT: Those pictures were actually from the rover's rear-hazard-avoidance camera's. The HD/color camera hasn't been turned on yet.


Casting a shadow on the martian soil. Dude...that's fucking GREAT! Really mind-blowing. What I wouldn't give to be able to fuck'around with the remote control on that bitch. Can't be much more than a PS3 remote type thing. Right?

it wuld be great if you saw a little tiny dot on the horizon, then it started getting bigger and bigger until it came into focus and was a martian running at the rover with a gun. Then he gets there, the rover takes a perfect picture of his face, and he smashes the shit out of it.

now THAT would be neat.

P.S. I guess he didn't need the gun, but it was pretty cool

I enter the martian atmosphere at over 20,000 km per hour, and you call Usain Bolt "fast". Screw you assholes.

I hate these filthy neutrals Kif. With enemies you know where you stand, but with neutrals? Who knows.

It sickens me.
