First image..



Ive been following this since I first heard about it. 10 years in the making. Curiosity is the size of a car weighing in at a ton. 8 months to get to Mars travelling at 3700 metres a second!!! :shock:

I'm fascinated by astronomy, and Im so chuffed to be right here right now. I couldnt think of a greater time to be around, apart from the time of Jesus may be. Or when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. No actually, neolithic Britain. Oh you know what I mean.

This is one of my favourite images from a previous mission, and its from Opportunitys mission.


Anyway thats enough from me. Just thought I'd post as Im so excited to see what new pictures will come out of the mission.

No disassemble number 5!

So you're saying Jesus did exist but he was a dinosaur. Groovy.

Let's just hope that it doesn't find any cats on Mars...

I love this sort of thing, amazing technology and a great step in exploration, its what humans were supposed to do expand our horizons.

I thought you were extinct, havent seen you online for ages. Do you play much at the moment phil? I'VE BEEN PERSUADED to get the "new need for burnout" game when it comes out.
