Mars Science Laboratory, or MSL, a.k.a. Curiosity. I have absolutely nothing to add to what's already been written. This is instead my little electronic scrapbook section for one of the most exciting space missions since Apollo 11.
Since I live on the east cost in Orlando, I stayed up past my bedtime to watch the video streams from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory located at the California Institute of Technology. Because of the three hour time difference between the two coasts it was 1:31am local Orlando time when Curiosity successfully landed on Mars.
Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) and this incredible shot of Curiosity with its large supersonic parachute deployed. This shows how far we've come in planetary exploration when we have a constellation of satellites around Mars to help with the MSL, even capturing its entry over the surface of Mars.
Spirit and Opportunity, not be effected by the seasons with dust collecting on solar panels. Curiosity was designed from the get-go to last a good long time, measured in years. Perhaps it will last longer than Opportunity, which is now in its eighth functional year on Mars.
