I watched it live, damn impressive. It even has a drone like thing they are going to try flying to get more images and they are going to try producing oxygen from the CO2 in the atmosphere.

Amazing technology to actually be able to land that thing on Mars and have it collect samples of that planet. Impressive stuff.

I'm with Rachael Maddow. Rachael Maddow: We Can Land A Rover On Mars, But We Can’t Keep The Lights And Water On In Texas. Someone tweeted. Scientists are in charge of Mars, Republicans are in charge of Texas.

From elsewhere:

Mars is the only known planet solely inhabited by robots.

That we KNOW of...I've seen those old Star Trek shows, the native inhabitants might be living far beneath the Martian surface, just waiting to kill some anonymous ensign in a red shirt.
