I believe in hummanity and it's technology, creativnes and genius. I believe that Curiosity will land without any big problems. And even if it don't... Well, creativity and genius will help try again, without making previous errors ;) I will hold my tumbs ;)

Thanks everyone for posting. Baby steps on Mars can lead to human steps faster than you think.

Here are some links for future reference. If you here anything in the future about aliens or water PM me so we can share it with the world. Otherwise I will let this thread quietly fade into the sunset.

Have fun exploring .

Great thread. Thanks for sharing those links.

That landing sequence is something straight from a Si-fi movie. The achievement of landing curiosity is a just amazing.

Now odyssey just needs to behave....
