Curiosity On Mars

How exciting that the Mars Science Laboratory is now safely on the surface of Mars, collecting data.  It's absolutely mind-blowing how far the human race has come... think of it: the first object ever put into space was a ballistic missile (the V2) on October 3, 1942.  And now,  just 70 years later, we have a fully-equipped mobile  lab, remotely controlled from Earth with the capability of sending images and chemically analyzing samples from the surface of another planet.  70 years?! Astonishing.
