Curiosity WOW!

October 24, 2015

A satellite view of the duplicate curiosity rover hanging out in its yard at JPL!

It’s amazing how big the rover is (compare it to the car out on Pioneer road). Watching the live stream from the JPL control room during landing was wickedly exciting, a “moon landing” moment for me. Crazy that it has been 3 years already since that evening…
