Three cheers for humanity. I mean, we got the Olympics going on right now. We see nations compete at the highest level, side by side and the world watches. And then, something even more awesome happens. The Mars Rover “Curiosity” lands on Mars. Can the human race get a high five people? Seriously!
Curiosity, the largest and most advanced spacecraft ever sent to another planet, stuck its extraordinary landing Sunday night in triumphant and flawless fashion, and is poised to begin its pioneering, two-year hunt for the building blocks of life — signs that Earth’s creatures may not be not alone in the universe.
“Stuck it’s landing.” There it is.
