Through the Eyes of Mars Curiosity

This has been something on my mind the passed couple of days.

Imagine what it would be like to be on the mars curiosity shuttle. Could you imagine what it sees right now?! If you turned around you would see a big blue star in the sky, growing ever dimmer upon the infinite horizon. Bathed upon by the neverending glow of our majestic mother, the sun.

Turn around again and what you see is a frontier of unimaginable curiosities, answers, and questions. A place that we all would think was only the creation of the deepest cavities of our brain. A marvelous red planet in all of its beauty just miles in front of your eyes. So close that you can almost smell the iron of the ancient sands. Just as the first rain after a long overspent summer. The mountains and craters under the speculation of your very own eyes. Not artificial lenses creating the illusion that we are there. The definition and clarity of that land's serene grace and beauty.

Looking around you see the milky way, the sharpness of trillions of crystal clear stars flooding your retinas.
You couldn't help but convince yourself we are not alone.

Cross your fingers for the safe landing of this brave robot. And thank you NASA for giving the opportunity for us all to believe.

I guess the world lost its ability to image things beyond a photograph.

Go figure.

We should be able to watch it here.
Live coverage is supposed to start at 8pm Pacific time and 11pm Eastern time.

Do you guys think it will make the landing? Will it crash? Will it find any signs of life?

It said on NASA's live feed that unless everything goes perfect. We wont know if Curiosity actually landed until about 4 AM Pacific time. Im from California and that still seems like an eternity away.

But 13 minutes until landing!!!
