Hopefully this Curiosity doesn’t kill anything…..

So i’ve been following the landing of NASA/JPL’s Curiosity spacecraft landing on Mars.  They made it!!!! That’s amazing if you ask me.

So here’s a few interesting videos that I found online that I thought were cool.

This one shows a re-enactment of the landing on mars from the JPL mission control.

This one explains the communication scenarios that they have worked on to get the data back from Curiosity.

Did you know that the tires on the Curiosity rover spell JPL in morse code.  When the wheels are rolling it’s leaving JPL in it’s tracks. See picture below
