Mars Touchdown – It was Right out of a Ron Howard movie

By on May 28, 2008

Well, in an absolute Hollywood-style touchdown, complete with footage of the men at their stations awaiting word that the Rover had safely landed, quaking with each benchmark reached during the countdown, “150 meters…120 meters….90 meters…,” the Mars Rover had landed.

There are times when I wish I could have been born a little later, just to see the incredible things that the next generation gets to discover.  

We brought in computers, that make our planet just a little smaller by giving us the power of shared information.

What were the most important accomplishments of previous generations?
