It is absolutely amazing that they were able to not only get the Curiosity Rover safely and successfully into the atmosphere of Mars, but onto the surface, booted up, running, and functioning as well. With all the research, calculations, and countless scenarios, with a myriad of variables in the mix, there is only so many scenarios you can theorize and simulate here on Earth for a successful mission, and they have been successful thus far.

The pictures Curiosity is sending back to Earth, from Mars that is 160,000,000+ miles away are fascinating to see and examine. And then they turn around and conduct a 160,000,000 mile remote software update!

NASA and all their brilliant Scientists and Engineers never cease to amaze me!!! So, many hats off to those master minds behind it, and all those that made it a successful mission thus far.
