This is an amazing achievement. A tip of the cap to anyone at NASA that was involved. Very cool videos on the NASA website. I love the sheer joy and celebration after the success. http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html

Super cool success. I heard the news just before going to sleep last night. Let's hope this rover "keeps on trucking" for many years. Now, if only it would find any shred of evidence of living organisms, past or present, that would be without a doubt the most monumental discovery in the history of the human race. And a tremendous milestone in our understanding of who we are in this universe.

This is a moment where I would like to see NASA use some superlatives when addressing the press. Nothing short of "perfect execution, and meeting and exceeding expectations" does it for me. The world all over needs to know and admire the crew that executed on this plan with such perfection. These are the heroes that I would like our youth to admire, not the vane pop stars and other socialites of little redeemable value to our society.

The 7 minutes of terror video is incredible. This was truly a monumental achievement of engineering.

Makes you stop and wonder in amazement at how many varied systems have to work together and go just right to make this happen. Go NASA!

After the "seven minutes of terror" was over, I'm sure the Curiosity team enjoyed the immense joy and pleasure of success. kudos to the entire team and especially the "Sky Crane" team for taking the courage in trying something new and making it successful the very first time. Surely there was a great celebration at JPL.

This is wonderful achievement. Next, human should visit Mars and invite someone from Mars to earth!

It's amazing to think engineers landed something the size of a small car on Mars. Kudos to all involved.
