Mars Rover!
 
The rover lands tonight about 0131 eastern time. The link below has a link within the story about live simulator in the start of the 2nd paragraph. It shows a graphical live feed of what is happening! Pretty cool!

That is cool, hope it lands okay.

That will be a big feat if it does land properly as it's a monster sized rover (relatively speaking) and it shouldn't run into the same issues as past ones that get stuck on rocks or high center. Plus, having such a different and complicated landing system does mean that if it works then they no longer have to 'bomb' the surface and hope it survives the landing.

It will be interesting to see for sure!

Ive been checking this out too and it looks complex to land the darn thing but will be cool if it sends back images and doesn't explode

How long do you think it'll be before we can use that technology for pizza delivery?

Fast Delivery!

Well at 46,000 MPH you should be able to order a pizza say from a killer pizza place in NY and get it to the west coast in 30 minutes or less right?
