Low Bandwidths were primarily the reasons of that, and how the anxiety regarding the landing success rate were defeated by their over-the-top engineering and monitoring.

Lemonheads are ****ing delicious.

What a stupid name for a rover though, right? I would've called it, "The Red Rover" because it's on the Red Planet. Get it?

For clarity, the first image in Lizard's post is the same photograph as the first image in my post. The difference is that the camera that is currently active on Curiosity has a wide-angle lens, and Lizard's is a modified version which attempts to make the perspective more like what the human eye would perceive.

You may want to take a closer (and longer) look at the pic I posted.

NASA has released a batch of new photos from the landing event and the surface.
they're extremely high res so I'll just drop the direct links.

somebody decided to drop their photoshop skills on NASA and patch up one of those grayscale images to imagine what Mars looks like in true color.
