So NASA's curiosity rover landed in the wee hours.  Below is the very first image it transmitted back.  The transmissions take 14 mins to reach earth!  I was hoping for color I mean it did cost 2.5 billion dollars but I guess larger colored pics will come later in the week when they deploy the rover's mast which is carrying the high-resolution cameras.  Can't wait to see those pics!

Maybe we will see an alien life form check it's hair in the reflection of the lens :o)
