Reliving the moment: Curiosity’s landing on Mars

Alone in the middle of the night, August 5-6, I sat glued to my computer as Curiosity pulled off its extraordinary landing on the surface of Mars. I chewed my nails, I got goosebumps, I cheered, and I cried. It was glorious.

I watched this video just now and did it all over again. The goosebumps, the crying. But this time I was clearly not alone. And it was glorious.

Thanks to IzaakMak for bringing this to my attention.
