20 mins to Curiosity Landing on Mars

It was pretty cool though, woke up half an hour before, then 15 minutes before, then went through the 7 minutes of terror and they barely got folks quieted down after touchdown in time for the two pictures to come up. Almost reminded me of Prometheus but nobody started touching buttons that weren't supposed to be touched. There were a bunch of scientists going nuts though.

Well FINALLY something I want to spend tax money on.
