You should go download a copy of Real Alternative. I hate real media stuff but I use that program for when its the only format available. No problems so far.

Bummer, looks like I'll have to depend on others telling me about it.

First video feed uploading from digital array, ETR 45 seconds after airbag deflates... ETA 2 minutes...

"Have a lock on the carrier signal"

Rover landed base-metal-down, or right-side-up, but airbags still inflated. Airbags to retract in about 2 minutes.

FUCKING AMAZING!!!



I am compltely in awe of the technology and human spirit that it takes to send a robotic probe to another planet!


Not to sound like an ethnocentric bigot or anything, but THIS is what the West and democracy is all about - giving people the opportunity to explore their limits!  Not telling them HOW to live their lives or what to believe.



To me, space exploration captures the essence of what it truly means to be human!

I love space exploration!

Pictures may be coming tonight. 11:30 California time. Stills from UHF via [i]Odyssey[/i]. They intend to try opening the high gain antenna on the lander and get streaming TV between 5 and 7 PM CA time tomorrow.

O.K., I do not want to gloat, but how many times have we landed on Mars, and how many times have others nations screwed up their landings?  Of anyone knows the stats, please tell.

It just feels like its morning in America again.  Man do I love these times.
