    I can't wait for color and higher resolution images. For preliminary shots those are quite impressive!

    what a bunch of bullshit.

    black and white?
    camera pointed at the ground?

    obviously no one @ NASA is a photographer.
    freakin' amateurs :mad:

    From my sister: "Looks like a picture taken in 1970. Maybe that delay is longer than we thought."

    the conspiracy theories have already started.
    people think that this shit happens in a top-secret Hollywood film studio.

    "that explains why the images are such low quality!"

    The video of the control room when confirmation was received was a joy to see - the relief was palpable on everyone's face.
    Gotta love moments like that.

    Forward, Humankind

    One small step for a robot the size of a Fiat 500, one giant leap for mankind...

    I was going to say, the control room footage reminds me of the Olympic Stadium on Saturday night ;)

    So... did you watch it live? ;)

    I did, btw. Though I had to use CNN after my bandwidth collapsed. Sadly none of the German news stations felt obligated to broadcast this big event live. And those CNN reporters seemed quite clueless.

    In a week or so we will get higher res images and in colour when NASA had enough time forging them in photoshop.

    I just noticed that in the US it was still Neil Armstrong's birthday when Curiosity landed on Mars. That's a nice birthday present. :)

    Neocons are already calling dibs on real estate for a new church on Mars.
