AA> I completely forgot about it. I had it scheduled as a reminder
AA> in my iPod, but I forgot the iPod at home this morning.
I had it in mind but got busy with other things. I'll see if I can catch up
here in a bit.
AA> I bet the fine martian dust will muck up the rotors very
AA> quickly. There is no service station on mars to repairs things
AA> like that.
I hope that dust is dry enough that it doesn't stick to anything.
AA> SO.. was the landing captured well? One of the pics post-
AA> landing is just black and white. Isn't this multi-billion $
AA> rover equipped with a colour cameras?
I haven't had a look yet. I saw a headline that the landing was successful but
haven't had a look yet.
AA> I think I noticed a recorded 2hr program of the event on YT.
Good stuff, I'll go check that out.
