It's pretty exciting, OP. I'm waiting for the full video of the landing. The still shot from the Skycrane is amazing.

This is sooo cool!

On a stand-alone basis, these scientific achievements are exciting and I'll never get tired of seeing the progress of humanity.

For those who critique spending this money, they need to more fully understand the direct and indirect positive (economic) impact of these scientific efforts for life on earth.

I wonder who will claim the planet as their own (Asia, Russia, S. Arabia, U.S.)? Is it whoever colonizes it first with people?

The martians turned out all the lights and went underground. "Are they gone yet?"

Those images are so clear. It really is amazing. To me, it looks like a remote desert here on around Afghanistan. I'm not into the space program, usually. This is very cool and the US should be proud. Take a bow..not too much to proud here now lately.

You are not alone, OP. Not by a long shot.

Those pics are incredible.

How much money did this project cost?

Why do we need it?

Early Cuyler: What did I teach you about Perseverance, young man?

Rusty Cuyler: That, “if at first you don't succeed, then it wasn't meant to be. It's just a waste of time, 'cause the Union’s just gonna take your money anyways, 'cause they jealous that we got an extra bone in our body that makes us smarter, but don't nobody in Science care to acknowledge that”...and “you were an unwanted pregnancy!”, and “you ruined my dirtbikin’ career!”, and “get outta my sight, you disgust me!” You talking ‘bout that one, Daddy?

Early: [sniffles with pride] And a son has done been imparted with the knowledge of a father. [beat] Now, what did I tell you about drinking underneath the age, huh?

Rusty: Uhh, you said, “if you can afford to bring back enough for me, then I don't care what you do.” And, “it's your body, you can kill it however you want to, ‘cause America's about freedom.”

It's all fun and games until they bring that dust back and cause a pandemic 1000x worse than COVID.

I guess you’re against government support of the arts too, right?

Patience and Perseverance brought this photo for our reference.

It is very interesting. Yet also reminds how little humanity has proceeded in the universe. So much has happened in the last hundred years to make our lives easier yet we know so little what’s going on around this planet.

So thrilling to see the Martian dirt landscape in all its full light-brown and beige glory!

by Anonymousreply 37Last Wednesday at 10:05 AM

The videos and images are so clear, it's like it was recorded locally. It feels like you're there. The moon landing, everything was so grainy...but that was an amazing feat at that time...not to take away from it.

I am just watching two hour long document of building it. People working on the project are so wise smart and clever I can’t understand it. They are in a different level of wisdom.

@r26, "Looks like Nevada "

It looks like Georgia red clay right after they clear the land for a new housing development
