    Can't wait to see the first pictures from it next week.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Intriguing solution to the problem of getting it there. I hope it goes well. One comment made was that if only one thing went wrong then the mission would be "all over".

    It made me think you could still rescue one thing from such a disaster: an actual enactment of the adage, "All over Red Rover."

    That makes if almost impossible to fail
    CC, Image editing OK.

    it really is an amazing feat, I really had doubts about how well that sky crane maneuver would work, but glad it did. Bill that link is down for me atm, says the site is experiencing difficulties.
    Cheers David.
