I See Mars!

6 Aug

I just watched “Curiosity” successfully land on the surface of Mars.  Minutes after touchdown, pictures began to come in.  And there it was…..the surface of Mars and on the horizon was the sun.  Yeah, I cried okay?  I cried.  I blew up right along with Mission Control on the NASA channel. I went to high five  someone but no one was here because Husband went and took a nerve pill and passed out in the back of the house.  I don’t even know I can sleep tonight.  Is there anyone else geeking right the freak out right now besides me?

I guess I’ll go calm myself down now.  Tomorrow….today, actually…is my kid’s first day of 1st grade.  I don’t want to walk her into class looking like a crazy eyed science dork.

UPDATE!  FIRST IMAGES OF MARS!

      it’s just a shame more people don’t appreciate the significance of these discoveries and explorations. Too busy Facebook-ing and stuffing their face with cheeseburgers I guess.

    This is so momentous… my mind boggles just thinking about how immense this is. I’d high-five you through my screen, but my hand might get a little bit crushed, and I do need this hand for typing and such. Oh, what the Hell! bvbrbvabcabfu4nvtit 😀
