OMG Look at this: Curiosity photographed while landing!

Curiosity landed on Mars last night (I assume you were watching). Well, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter managed to take a picture of Curiosity with its parachute! This is so cool. Look:

  1. Worst case scenario:

    Curiosity crashes into Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter – Both crash to the surface.

    Fortunately, it didn’t happen.

    Nice work. Hey, was that that cool orbit software from an iPad you had there for a second near the end?
