Overwhelming Curiosity by Whatsapokemon Overwhelming Curiosity by Whatsapokemon
So, the Curiosity landed earlier this week, and I was glued to the stream as it did. I was elated at the news that it had successfully landed

Honestly, I am impressed by the feat. I must congratulate everyone at the NASA JPL, along with every other organisation all over the world who had a hand in the mission.

My hope is that this will inspire people to care about science, and care about space, to think about things beyond their TV screen, or beyond their plans for the weekend.

Oh, and ponies.

Background presumably by NASA.

That is NOT drab, Rares. That is practical.

I got to see it twice at JPL before it left for Mars. I too was super excited when it got there! :la:

Aww sweet, that must have been so awesome. I watched the livestream when it landed and that was so amazing, I can't even imagine seeing it up close.

Yup, got to see it in the clean room twice and I also got to see a working life size scale of it at the JPL open house. :lol:
The rover is huge! :lmao:

Yeah, they said it was about the size of a small car. A robot that size is actually really impressive. I am so jealous.

Alright, I knew that Celestia sent ponies to the moon, but this is ridiculous.
