Our Mars spacecraft can take photos of our other spacecraft landing on Mars

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured an image of the Mars Science Laboratory and Curiosity rover parachuting to the surface:

This is so cool.

    Thoughts: Curiosity on Mars
    I was going to write an opinion piece about Curiosity, landing on Mars. But others addressed my position better than I, so here they are.

    We did this with Phoenix back in aught 8 (it’s so cool that I can say ‘aught’… I can’t wait ’till I’m a curmudgeonly old man) and we even got details of the strings connecting the lander to the ‘chute, but that’s likely due to a better lighting angle

    Also, turns out that MRO also captured the heat shield as it was falling away.

    The time it would take for the heat shield to hit the ground after being ejected was a minute and a half. We captured it in mid-air.

    Fuck yeah.

    This is true of any church.
    My natal church has split into so many fragments, no one knows how many any more. And they differ a huge amount among themselves. Google

    Do your set-up fix and pre-pack. If you are sure you’re promoting this year, and want to put your holiday vacay a chance to excellent use, compose a record of all those little maintenance you’ve been wanting to do permanently, call up your community handyperson and get ’em done. Cash for homes
