Rover Curiosity nears Mars
Joyce Park stashed this in Science
Its mission is to see whether Mars could ever have supported life. It's amazing to me how just in my lifetime the answer to this question went from maybe-in-fiction to hell-no back to oh yes!
Watch the landing live on Sunday night around midnight EDT.
One sidenote: projects like this have embraced social media to an astonishing extent. Check out the chit-chat between Curiosity and astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Hahaha! Human gets last laugh :)
You've made me philosophically wonder what the meaning of life is.
Are single called organisms elsewhere significant or are we seeking other conscious beings?
Mars, Curiosity has landed.
WE JUST LANDED A ROBOT ON MARS! WOO HOO!!
I've been watching Olympics gymnastics all night.
