    Completely and utterly mind-blowing. Got to be honest, I couldn't see how this could possibly land successfully. But... wow! Incredible - my jaw dropped when I saw we'd landed it successfully this morning.
    This, it was absolutely amazing. I have to say watching the live feed from JPL and the comments for the final landing sequence - "radar acquired ground...deploying sky crane...touchdown!", all coming within 10 or so seconds - felt almost unreal.
