Thread: Mars Curiosity landing

  1. #1
    Default Mars Curiosity landing
    Who else is going to be watching it tonight? I can't wait. And then if all is successful I can't wait for this week when it starts booting up and pictures start coming in.

    First check out this little video they made about the worries of the new landing style.

    It is the size of a mini copper so it can't use the traditional landing styles. It has better cameras and sensors than previous rovers.

    By mid monday the front and side cameras will be coming on. Later monday early tuesday the top camera will be up and prepared to start. We will get very small black and white images the first 12 hours or so because it will be sending from the small cameras that look to make sure it is in safe spot.
