First Pictures From Mars Curiosity Landing

The Mars Curiosity Lander just touched down on Mars about 150 million miles away from Earth and we are already receiving live pictures from the surface of Mars. Above is the first picture taken. Just think about how incredible that is. A space ship took off from Earth, landed some 150 miles away and was pretty much immediately sending images back to Earth! I can’t even upload pictures to Instagram or Facebook when I want because I can’t get cell service here on Earth. It absolutely blows my mind how we were able to accomplish that. It gives me hope that one day humans can reach Mars. The rest of the images will be posted here. Below is another picture, there’s some dust that was kicked up while landing. Absolutely amazing.
