Well after many years and generations trying to make it happen, today...it has! A landmark day for NASA space exploration as Mars Rover has landed on the red planet! NASA's Mars science rover Curiosity performed a daredevil descent through pink Martian skies late on Sunday to clinch an historic landing inside an ancient crater, ready to search for signs of life. Do I think we could have spent the BILLIONS of dollars it took to make this happen elsewhere within our great country?? ABSOLUTELY! but this is a big day for science and I'm not going to rain on anybody's parade so I digress.
Mission controllers burst into applause and cheers as they received signals confirming that the car-sized rover had survived a perilous seven-minute descent NASA called the most elaborate and difficult feat in the annals of robotic spaceflight. Check out the story by clicking the link below.
