Watched the real-time finale of Curiosity’s remarkable journey to Mars. Gaze affixed to the internet as transit turned to descent of this automobile-sized collection of mobile sensors, handicrafted by the finest engineers and technicians, now oh so distant. The incredible complexity of this entry and landing…the magnificence of what Man can accomplish through his intellect, technology and drive and dreams, even whilst surrounded by those many self-made madnesses that in these moments of triumph pale in their importance. Relish this grand accomplishment, for it shows us our very best side.
