Default Curiosity has landed.

I felt that this deserved a mention. Plus it'll likely take some people minds off of the string of shootings going on here in America.

The rover, Curiosity, has landed on Mars. Some images from the landing site have already been sent back, and they can be seen here and here, as well as a few other sites. The raw pictures on the second site aren't showing up for me though. Not sure if that will be the case for anyone else here.

There was a live even on xbox that enabled the viewers to watch as they coordinated everything from within that command center. Very impressive watching them work.

Did anyone else watch this event?

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Yeah. Too bad nothing like this will be happening anymore in America though since Obama shut down the space program.

Not trying to turn my own thread into a political nonsense thread. I'm only pointing something out.

Eh, true enough about the cash, but then again, we aren't the worst off country in the world, which is a good thing I suppose.

Anyway, it'll give other countries space programs time to shine in the spotlight and get some recognition for their time and hard work.

Big O did the right thing by closing the space programme down, should also shut down the military too, get your house in order then you can have your rocket powered toys back.

Only reason I mentioned Obama was to point something out, not to turn my thread into a political nonsense thread. Take this crap elsewhere.

I'm only wondering who else saw this on xbox live, or on tv, if it was broadcast, cus i have no idea if it was, and what their thoughts were.

Maybe. Turns out the mission is supposed to last for two years. Maybe more.
