One year ago today the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity made the most spectacular Entry, Descent, and Landing sequence of any spacecraft ever to set down on the Red Planet.

I was with my sweetheart in our loungeroom watching the livestream. It was more than a little inspiring. Happy Birthday curiosity, hope you’re having fun!
That’s a great video, Liz! Jeri and I couldn’t watch it together because I was out of town but I was able to watch it with a friend of mine who is an astronomer as well and we had a blast. Great memories!
