Re: Mars Curiosity Rover... to land 10:31 pm 8/5/2012

Hmmm ... that's funny, Sojourner, I seem to recall quite a bit of cheering in Mission Control for the Apollo missions and Viking landings. But that might be a botched recollection on my part. I definitely don't remember any conga lines like these guys were practically doing before the 2:30 am press conference, though!

But, to be fair, it was 2:30 a.m. and I bet half of them had been thinking two hours earlier, "This'll never work!"
