I was able to see it live on NASA TV. Tremendous watching the roomful of nervous blue-shirted techs hanging on every word from the play-by-play guy as he ticked off every stage -- all the same steps I went through when I played with the Eyes on the Solar System simulation today. And then the room erupting at touchdown. And the first images coming through within a couple of minutes! Amazing.
