August 5th ""something wonderful" is going to happen" Can we get some excitement?
Day by day, hour by hour, the tension is building. NASA’s mega-mission
to Mars and delivery of the Curiosity rover could be a smashing success …
or just smashing.
The Mars Science Laboratory’s 1-ton Curiosity rover
is factory-equipped with science gear to delve into whether Mars ever
was — or might be today — an eco-friendly setting able to sustain
A seven-minute, terrorizing plunge
through the planet’s atmosphere awaits the spacecraft. MSL’s Curiosity
rover is scheduled to touch down at Gale Crater at 10:30 p.m. PDT on
Aug. 5 (1:30 a.m. EDT, 0530 GMT, Aug. 6).

I've been looking forward to this event since launch. I plan to be up and "watching" the best I can. hopefully NASA TV will be streaming the event live.
This will either be an outstanding accomplishment for NASA and America or an unmitigated disaster.
Right now, Curiosity right now is Schrodinger's Cat, it's both alive and dead, but the box will be opened very soon and we will know.
God bless NASA, it's people and the American citizens that have the spark for exploration.
