    That was an intense couple of minutes, I was cheering in front of my computer. Well played NASA.

    congrats to NASA team. amazing achievement.

    Well done.....geeks will inherit the earth...

    There should be more images on the next run of the satellites to pick up from the rover. Apparently in the procedure, there should be at least one image of the sky crane descent.

    The mission control theme song for the day was:
