OK, it was the video coverage starting in 2 hours. :rolleyes: 

Another 1.5 hrs to landing.

Apparently the dish at Green Bank West Virginia was thought to be out of action due to weather but they have managed to get it running and it will be in use and pointed at Mars. :tu:

Well done NASA, two out of two for the rocket sledge landing system.

I love listening to the nerd NASA people talk about everything. They are so geeked about about this success.

Targeting looks good, it must be close to chosen site?

Yes I saw this live on TV minutes ago. How cool to watch and how neat it would be to be part of that team. They should be very proud of themselves. Excellent and well done :tu:

Cheers to our little rover to Mars.. may your systems last long, your components be good. Hope you find friends out there, I know there's a couple or few. 

Hope we humans can send another friend or two up there to share Mars with you. If not, be patient and we will watch what you do.

My grandson's teacher put it on the zoom for the whole class.  I think he was the one who asked her if they could watch it.

Excellent! You taught him well!

I remember watching the little Sojourner rover roll off the Pathfinder lander back in 1997, live at the Canberra Deep Space Tracking Station. That was pretty spesh.

Congratulations to the team for their success here, and hopefully many more successes to come.

(Great to see the landing didn't share the fate of these spacecraft! [amusing YT video])

Yep very proud but they were so full of stress before knowing that all was a good landing, probably a pain waiting for the result ! Hat off to them !

Yes i guess it's the build up and the stress of hoping that everything will go as planned. But beautiful to see the release of stress and emotional discharge when the mission is successfully completed.

I did! Fantastic! Congrats to the whole team! Can you imagine how nervous they must have been, one mistake and you've lost years of work and you're not getting a second chance for that many more? Talk about a high pressure job.

So cool, I remember  several of my profs having  satellite data coming back from then moon back in the 70's. It was a very big deal.  Now this is amazing for humanity too, there are three probes now on Mars I believe, US, China, and a UAE probe. Hopefully we can all share all of the data.
