I remember us all around the computer as we got the first ever from-the-surface pictures of Mars years ago - it was so so exciting!

Now the Curiosity has safely landed!!

I watched it last night. It was quite amazing!! It was also fun seeing all the excitement in the NASA Lab with cheering, crying, laughing, and hugging. Their peanuts tradition and passing around jars of peanuts was fun too!!
