Curiosity Landing at JPL with Will.i.am

...and astronauts. Quite the party. It even had Buzz (Aldrin).

 

Hitched a ride back with Virgin Galactic (Thanks George!) This great photo by Robbie of Cosmogia sure caught the sparkle in our eyes.

 

The landing was a spectacular ballet of audacious technology, choreographed with multi-stage landers and two satellites passing by at just the right time overhead. We should be seeing more imagery and data from this landing than any that came before.

 

Here's the video I took leading up to this photo.
