    Shit, that rover can take a picture from Mars and send it to Earth quicker than my iPhone can load up its camera app :D

    Be funny if one of the images showed a crispy critter fried by the retro rockets.

    If there's only one thing NASA can do well it's put robots on Mars. Sweet.

    This! An incredible result.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    Can you imagine the sense of relief for everyone involved in the whole program? Imagine spending years of your career working on something that just crashes and ends up a pile of scrap metal on the Martian surface.

    Yeah because sending a photo back from a car sized rover.that just landed on another world is pretty unremarkable! What was ge expecting to see? Twat :)

    I was listening to the radio the other day. A NASA guy was on talking about Enceladus and was trying to get a mission there on the go. Let's hope this success will help that one out.

    I would love to see a mission to Europa that drilled down through the ice to the ocean below. And beyond that I would love to see a manned mussion to mars... Hope I'm still around to see it :)

    I'm watching the briefing and it's interesting that they made such a big thing about american dominance in space. Really feeling the issue from India and China now. I hope this spurs a new space race! I would love to see what these guys cam 4o with a lot more funding. It would be nice if the ESA were spurred on too.

    Blimey, I had no idea of the size of the rover, I thought it was like a little rc car, but it weighs 1 ton and is the size of a small car!
