  • Happy birthday to yew!

    I don’t recall the Viking landers having to go through all of that? How come?

    Happy Birthday!

    (@GKC: Great question. The Viking landers were much smaller and lighter, so they needed only a simple parachute to slow their landing speed. Curiosity is larger and heavier since it carries more and better instrumentation than previous Mars rovers. It’s also running on nuclear power, so it won’t have to deal with having solar panels get too covered-up to be useful every time there’s a Martian dust storm.)

      What kind of nuclear power? SNAP?

  • Wow!

    I hope they remembered to convert feet to meters this time.

    Modern technology is so awesome!

    Happy birthday, Mark!
