Fun & Exciting Curiosity

Have you met Curiosity? Let me introduce you. Curiosity is the Mars rover than landed on the surface of Mars around midnight last night. It's official, she is a girl and will be referred to in the feminine. I didn't get to bed until the wee hours of the morning because her landing was so exciting. It was a nail biting performance all the way. I am not a fan of Mars and have never understood the world's passion to put humans on Mars. I am, however, a total fan of the science we receive from space exploration. I'm also a fan of the amazing technology and engineering that goes into making these space exploration missions a success. I'm also a fan of the social media that's available for us to keep up with these missions on a moment to moment basis. In the early days of space exploration we didn't have that and it makes a big of difference. I feel like I know Curiosity on a personal basis.  Isn't she cute? Go NASA go!
