    Loved watching the landing last week. Was a really tense few minutes because there was literally nothing the control room staff could do except watch.
    It's also great that Curiosity has a friend up there now https://twitter.com/MarsCuriosity.

    Good read!!! And to answer the questions posed: Yes it's money well spent! The fact that 4 different missions arrived at or around Mars this year within the space of a month, and only one of them coming from the US, shows that the rest of the world agrees.
    And with Elon Musk stubbornly and sometimes cheecky but steady progress made with (by?) his SpaceX company i am sure he will achieve his goal of seeing humans set foot on Mars within his, and therefore our, lifetime. Even if only because NASA does not want to feel embarressed that an upstart rich nerdboy from South Africa beat them to a task that is almost literally their mission statement.
