Congratulations NASA!
"And if anyone has been harbouring doubts about the status of US leadership in space, well there's a one tonne automobile-sized piece of American ingenuity sitting on the surface of the Red Planet right now."
BTW: BBC is covering the story much much better than US news agencies. I couldn't find a video here in the states major news outlets..

The real first picture from Curiosity.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

The visual odometry is cool in itself. It's even neater that an engineering team came up with JPL in morse code and it's even cooler that JPL allowed it to go through!

This has got to be the most valuable penny ever minted. It is attached the the Mars curiosity rover as part of the camera calibration target.
