Anybody happen to see what that counter on the bottom that tells you how many people are watching the screen was when the actual landing/entry was going on?

No matter what that number was, I don't think it was enough. *sigh* why can't the space-lobby have the power of other lobbies?

CURIOSITY Successfully Lands On Surface of Mars

Postby Sentinel XV » Sun Aug 05, 2012 10:47 pm

Today is truly a historic day for science and for NASA. At the time of writing, 12:44 AM CST, the Mars Rover CURIOSITY has touched down successfully on the surface of the Red Planet and has transmitted its first image, a 64x64 "thumbnail" taken by the rear camera.

Utterly fascinated by the amount of engineering and physics know-how that went into the landing. Science is truly amazing.

"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."—former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman
