Look at all that geology at the landing site! A meandering stream bed and bluff-like features!

3. Saw the landing event live from JPL on NASA TV - but this is really COOL

To actually see the descent of the Rover.

I teared up again at the end when Mission Control erupted in cheering.

I wish We could kill the F-35 and take just a fraction of it's budget to build more of these amazing machines.

5. There is brief glimpse of dune-like ripple structures just before TD

Some found in an earlier meteorite crater.

9. I saw other features too

The "bluff" appears to have strata (layers) and there appears to be deposits on either sides on the dry meandering streambed.

All this brings out the young geologist in me.

So fucking cool...

Yup!

7. We can still do great things!

I've watched this several times. Amazing every time. It's been great to watch the steady progress from the Sojourner landing in 1997.
Definitely worth the money. Let's cut the DoD budget by 50% and do more of this!
