My View #120 - I've Seen Everything

I just watched the landing on Mars. Now I think I've seen everything. What a feeling it is to live, to see this, on the tv. It makes me feel very privileged, to see the latest ventures human beings have reached in their effort to study what is "out there" in space. Congrats.

According to the space.com website, the white material could be ice. Hence all the excitement about Mars, especially with Curiosity's much enhanced flexibility.
