Curiosity Settles Down to Work on Mars
Well, that was an amazing landing on Mars! The seven minutes of terror turned out to be a smooth operation that went off like clockwork. Mr. Spacewriter and I sat and marveled at the ease with with which the Curiosity rover settled down on Mars, ready to begin a series of surface explorations. Right now, as I type this, NASA’s administrator Charles Bolden is speaking about the mission, thanking the huge team around THIS planet for their hard work putting a very sophisticated rover on the RED Planet.
What’s up next? More images, more exploration, and a chance to figure out whether life has ever existed on Mars, and even more exciting, finding out just what conditions future human explorers will find on the planet.
When you read this, just remember this: you’re part of a species that can do great things. We need to keep doing them!
