    Cheered right along with them.
    And for the first pic too :D

    VP Biden called in - he was watching it live.

    Always exciting to see the scientists act like kids on Christmas morning when a craft lands safely.

    Yes, it is, and managing to control a craft to land safely on Mars presents its own challenges.

    I'm glad the landing was successful, hopefully the rest of the mission will go just as well.

    It will be fascinating to see what InSight manages to unearth while on Mars.

    Ah, well spotted.

    (You didn't think that my use of that precise verb was unintentional, now, did you?)

    While it's a fictional TV Show they do try to make it as realistic as possible what it will be like to live on Mars

    I've been watching the show since the beginning and I really like it. It's better than the junk they put on and try to call them TV Shows.

    Me too. But I have to wait for season two to be on dvd since I switched providers and don’t get nat geo now.
