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.

  2. How long do we have to wait before we know all went according to plan and start receiving signals .. etc ?

  3. hahaha.,.,..

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