by the dead vote well
this was neat to watch :gay: i made my son a little rocketship out of little connecting straws and stars and he flew it around the room during the landing

i remember how hard it was to learn to parallel park in an empty parking lot when i was trying to get my driver's license. meanwhile these guys built a real rocket and put a computer brain in it

then built a combination car-helicopter in and a separate brain for that and put it into the car

then launched the whole thing into space

then got nasa computer brains to talk to the rocket brain and land it successfully 300 million miles away

and are now using the nasa computer brains to talk to the car-helicopter brain so it can drive around mars and use its space drill to take core samples so we can study them for traces of microbial life

in addition to a literal fuckton of other science stuff

i have always had a healthy respect for outer space doins but for whatever reason this really made me stop and appreciate yesterday :gay:

for the record though i am an excellent parallel parker, it's one of the like three things i am good at

Just something to be happy about :gay: Yes crazy that after such a trip they landed a mile or two from target :shock: Hoping for some nice Mars landscape pics and there will (most likely) be video and sound too :xx: Life on Mars :alien:
