NASA's InSight Mars Lander about to touch down

Maybe see those aliens who built a Tesla-like electrostatic power distribution system that kept the Opportunity rover going well past its 90 day life expectancy...14 years and 214 days longer to be specific!

Or did engineers actually make something that operated that well?

 ;D

I think they just said 30 minutes to touchdown.

Landed.

Jeez, these kids at NASA celebrate and hug like a man landed.  If a man did land I don't know if they could hold onto their mud?!

First pic showed a dirty lens...where's the wipers?   :o



I find it curious, they keep landing in the same geographic corridor.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess "not you".

It's OK.  Can't be all politics and circling the drain 24/7 here...variety is the spice of life...or some such rot...
