You’re going to keep track of the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars as it happens tonight, right? OF COURSE YOU ARE, THIS WAS THE RHETORICALEST OF RHETORICAL QUESTIONS
If for some silly reason you want to pretend you weren’t, though, you should probably watch this video of how the landing is planned to go.
'Ili: You seen this?
'Ili: I thought the video was a little overproduced, but then it gets into what's actually going to happen and “WHAT THE FUCK”
'Ili: Check dat shit because this landing is going to be fucking extreme
'Ili: ::screaming guitars and mountain dew::
Colin: That was crazy.
'Ili: LOWERS THE ROVER ON WIRES
'Ili: THEN THE HARNESS FLIES THE FUCK AWAY
Colin: Yeah I knew about that bit
Colin: SO COOL
'Ili: How is this really happening.
'Ili: Also why are we not getting video of this.
'Ili: Can we just drop like 200 cameras on Mars beforehand.
'Ili: ONE WILL GET IT FOR SURE
Colin: three extra descent vehicles that exist only to capture video
Colin: ::director robot with a big cone and beret::
'Ili: ::clapboard on a parachute::
