"Touchdown confirmed. We are safe on Mars!”
Those words marked the end of the seven minutes of terror, two years ago today. Curiosity has been alive and well for two years on the surface of Mars.
As a tribute to that anniversary, I relived the seven minutes of terror, and realized there was much more than I could put in a single blog post.
I abridged my experiences into a single pdf, posted online at the provided link. That night was by far the most important in my life thus far, and it’s my honour to be able to share it with all of you.
Just click on the title to relive Curiosity’s landing.
Thanks so much for all your support, not only for our Mars time run, but for everyone at NASA and in spaceflight!
The future is just around the corner. Thanks for being a part of it!
