Mars Landing

I’ve been up all night with NASA TV. Curiosity landed at 1:31 ET; quite exciting. HICAP is awaiting the high resolution images to come in two days. And, we are looking forward to feedback from Curiosity’s rendezvous with the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and Odyssey utilizing HiRISE—High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment and relaying different types of data—basic radio frequency and Ultra High Frequency radio data. Data is received by NASA’s Deep Space Network antenna dishes in California, Spain and Australia; truly is a global education effort. Go world!
