Incredible images of Curiosity landing on Mars

The HiRISE team has outdone themselves this time. Using their incredible instrument, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment, they have captured an absolutely amazing. image of the Curiosity rover, descending on a parachute through Mars’ atmosphere.

“Nailed it!” Tweeted Christian Schaller of the HiRISE team. “My goodness, @MarsCuriosity you look pretty.”

My hope is that Curiosity will eventually discover artificial structures on Mars similar to the ones found on the moon. The rover is nuclear powered and can run indefinitely. Years from now we may know something.
