    Very cool. But I have to wonder: Why is it that we can send a land rover millions of miles away and land it intact on another planet, but we can’t get it to transmit a high resolution color photograph?

    Part of me hopes it is because it is due to a massive NASA cover-up, that they are purposefully hiding the real photos of all the Martian princesses.

    My understanding is that full-color, hi-res photos are coming, but everybody is still deep-breathing over having made it. Today is dial-down day.

  • Gee, all this and it only cost something like $2,500,000,000.00! What a colossal waste of public funds. Dial-down day should have been the day after someone first proposed the mission.

    Ah yes, exploring the universe and furthering science can be rather costly We should go back and let Queen Isabella know she should save her ducats.
