Curiosity is the greatest thing since the last Mars Explorers, one of which, Spirit, I think is still roaming around Mars five years later. But this new vehicle. My goodness. Did you get a load of the way it got to the surface of Mars? Right where it was supposed to land? I mean, are you kidding me? This is fantastic. This is the sort of thing human beings can do instead of killing each other.
