For those of you who may be having trouble finding links, here you go!

Timer:

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/index.html

NASA tv link:

http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/

NASA ustream link:

http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/

For those of you with an XBOX, there is an app to the stream that you can download for free, as well as a (free) game made by NASA that utilizes the Kinect functionality to show the amount of precision required to make the landing happen. It's all on the main page of XBOX Live today, and I am very stoked.

NASA on mah tv! I hope they make their NASA TV app permanent. I would dearly love it if they did.

Post landing:

Everything went really well, and we have our first images of Curiosity's wheel, and her shadow in the afternoon sunshine of Mars.

This feels like a moment where the whole world should burst into song, as if it's some sort of Disney movie.

More fun stuff!
