    here are links of where you can watch the mars rover landing live tonight from home (the coolest viewing option has to be on the big screen in times square)http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2408054,00.asp

    I'm excited because I'm a nerd. I dig space stuff... I think my generation got lucky with the excitement/hype of shuttle launches. I remember it was the only time tv was brought into class when we were kids...

    It was an exciting career! It's kinda like being a Marine..."Once a space worker, always a space worker". Now I'm teaching a retired launch director grand kids to Scuba dive!

    I've seen 100's of space launches, many manned, many unmanned...but to this day each one is as exciting as the first launch.

    I know many astronauts, even Scuba dove with several!

    "An image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured the Curiosity rover still connected to its 51-foot-wide (almost 16 meter) parachute as it descended towards its landing site at Gale Crater."
