I honestly didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to the Mars rover landing a couple of weeks ago simply due to being completely and utterly overwhelmed with this whole moving thing, but here are a small handful of neat links that I’ve come across in the last few days when I did have a few free moments here and there…

First up – this incredibly touching video put together by one of the engineers who helped to design the rover:

Next, an Ask Me Anything Reddit thread with a group of scientists and engineers from the mission:

And finally, I found this both interesting and funny as I waited for Windows to update itself this morning:

Welcome to Mars, Curiosity – hope your fate is a little better than that of the last rover… 😉
