This should be a pretty cool landing, what with the jet pack descent on the platform and all the cameras and so on. Should be a lot of fun. Much coverage from many sites.

I'm looking forward to it. Hope it lands ok.
I don't like to think of my self as an artist so much as someone who stares at empty spaces and imagines s--t.

Me too. I assume the atmosphere is real thin there?
This is one of the curious things. A copter in thin air. I love this stuff. Getting close.

Touchdown!

Seeing the first images, and they know where they are on the map. So much fun to come. Go NASA.

I've been chuckling to myself just considering the possibility that they had an audio track on the lander that was nothing but Ooofs and Ouches that would blurt out any time it hit turbulence or other bumps. All the way down to the surface.
