@Listypoos The statement you quoted was not meant to state achievement. All the points in it were regarding factors that would affect the payload (camera`s). Specifically the camera that would`ve had to record through some amazing heat shield and not burn up or be pure static from well the static and which is by far not one of the main cameras that will be used for research. So I understand why much room was not given to that camera`s development for it`s ability to record a few minute video as it fell. I hope you haven`t completely misunderstood.

tedgp: sadly.. I asked in a forum: " why can`t we see the images live as they are transmitted to us" and they were acting like i was the spawn of satan or something, and were doing everything they could to justify the pictures not being available to the public as soon as they arrive at earth. Which makes absolutely no sense if it was `for mankind`

Did they crop out the Mars colonies that are already there?

Just remember, everything is screened. We will only be allowed to see what the "powers that be" allow us to see.

It might sound like a conspiracy theory but its the unfortunate truth

keep in mind that the first images are stil with "shields up" to prevent damage to the camera during descent they have a clear shielding around the cameras, once the other cameras run the pictures will be better

That`s awesome,
So when does it start rolling?
How long til these HD Cams start transmitting?

"Why don`t you try shooting a camera tens of thousands of miles away and then have it continue sending you images as it`s burning up in the atmosphere of a nearby planet... really."


That being a fantastic achievement does not in itself make the video content enthralling. If you think calling the content dull in comparison what what you`d imagine falling through an alien atmosphere to be like...is to be confused with calling the achievement of getting a camera there in the first place dull, then you`ve completely misunderstood.

I`m with goaliejerry on this one.

Wait a min, it has a SAM at the front? I didn`t know it was armed. I suppose it might have to fend off those pesky martians.

To all you space haters talking crap about this video. Why don`t you try shooting a camera tens of thousands of miles away and then have it continue sending you images as it`s burning up in the atmosphere of a nearby planet... really.

Are we that spoiled?

So, if I`m not mistaken, it can`t even tweet its status updates? What a piece of crap. This is SOOO early 2000 technology.... (as said by someone who gives a crap about the Jersey Shore crew)

Not gonna lie - I have a space boner. Fricken awesome. This thing weighs 2000 lbs and is 10 feet long - and that bitch is rolling around mars. OH MAN, I wish I was a scientist for moments like these.

This thing is just a little shorter than a Mini Cooper, weights 2000 lbs, and is nuclear powered. Awwwwsssoooommmmeeee.

Do you even know why they are "dull" Listypoos? the first pictures were taken with those low resolution cameras just to make sure everything went as planned. Those "dull" pictures are going to get better as soon the rover deploys the high resolution color cameras

I think this is a case where reality didn`t live up to my hopes.

It`s fantastic that they`ve managed to get it there safely...and I can`t wait to see more videos and pictures that it`s taken....cause they sure can`t be as dull as these first ones.

The accomplishment is great.
This video, however, is positively underwhelming.
