A telling graf. Ad astra per aspera!

The first shot, taken immediately after landing. W00t!
…and Curiosity’s shadow. On Mars. My mind reels.
Best comment, from Lilek’s Bleat–
Watched the Curiosity landing last night. Magnificent. I was disappointed by the first few snapshots. I mean, after the brilliance and multi-fold technological pirouette of a landing (supersonic parachutes, descent stages, heat shield jettison, retro rockets, skycrane), all we get is Apollo 11 grainy black and white photos akin to cave dwelling scratchings? Honestly, I expected an Instagram.
