Way too cool. I think they will find life. Even if already extinct.

I'm excited to see what they find this time.  Should be interesting!

I just think it's awesome we have an aerial drone now.

I loved listening to the idea behind having actual, decent, cameras, recording entry and touchdown of the rover.  The guy was like "my daughter wants to wear a goPro camera doing gymnastics.... wait a minutes, why don't we just put some goPros on the entry vehicle?"  LOL and now we have the most amazing touch-down footage of any lander on any orbital body!

This is such a great step though.  I really hope we see man(kind) on Mars in my life time.   I mean, I'm 40. So, hopefully I got 30+ years left.  That seems more than reasonable to put Humans on the 4th rock from the Sun.

I watched this video by Neil DeGrasse Tyson.  He said if we can Terraform Mars... we can terraform Earth if it gets bad.

Isn't that what we already did before "we" left Mars?
