    1. Wow that’s impressive. I can’t park my car without hitting children or old ladies.


    2. Man, I tell ya!
      This was almost as nerve-racking as the other times they landed Rovers on Mars. They should rename this pic “7 Minutes of pants-wetting, nail-biting, scalding hot, Jihad-esque Terror!”


    3. Is the speed of sound the same in other atmospheres as it is on Earth?


    4. that’s ok then, nothing could possibly go wrong!


    5. What a bunch of fucking retards.

      MACH is an absolute speed, taken from EARTH measurements… do you think JPL actually calculates anything in Mach? It’s just a measure for ignorant fucktards like yourselves.

      Landing a car on Mars with the most sophisticated geological and chemical analysis tools ever sent into space? More difficult than you could ever FATHOM. So before you go around poking fun at progress, think about what you got done today, and measure up.

      If you were watching that control room you could have cut the tension with a knife because those men and women worked hard to bring an incredibly complex problem into fruition and it PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF WHEN OTHERS MINIMIZE THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS.

      Fuck the haters, I’m joining the joy ride to the future.
