Curiosity Has Landed!

Rube Goldberg would be proud.  I just watched the event live from JPL and they are already getting images (a bit dusty from the landing).  Congratulations to everyone involved.  We have now landed a school bus sized autonomous robotic laboratory on the surface of another planet.  No bouncing involved, sorry Spirit and Opportunity your big brother is in town.  I am duly impressed.
