    This is such good news!

    We have a friend who worked on one of the gizmos on board. Here is a cute quote from an e-mail this morning: "Our 2.5 B$ RC toy is on the ground safe!"

    Yeah that was really tense and exciting! Good to see it made it there safe!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Good thing too. Don't think that a 2.5 billion dollar piece of machinery blowing up in the Martian atmosphere would go over very well.

    Hmmm, I wonder if they put in some coding to give the robot an instagram account, that would be cool...

    Anyways, glad they landed and stuff, I'm sure there are some Canadian contributions onboard. But I'm also part American, so "AMERICA!!!!" USA!USA!USA!

    Nasa's budget for this was miniscule (2.5 billion) compared to the military's budget (1 trillion). In my opinion, curiosity is more important than expanding our military because curiosity will help us bring men to Mars. Why is bringing men to Mars important? Because we need to set up colonies on other planets to insure the continuation of the human race.
