I just had to stay awake to see how the Mars landing went. So far so good. Sometime tomorrow maybe there will be some high-resolution photos, even video, of the landing and Other Things.
For right now though, we have this low-res thumbnail photo of the shadow of Curiosity as it sits parked, seemingly in one piece, on the Martian surface.
Not much as photographs go, I suppose, but considering it’s right after landing, and considering it’s before any of the fancy gear gets unfolded, and considering it’s on fucking Mars, well, ’nuff said.
A wonderful achievement. I love this kind of stuff.
