Curiosity touched down safely. Video feed inside mission control has everyone going crazy. Now time to find cool stuff on the red planet!

 

I like how the first image is of a wheel on the surface. Kind of like "hey, check this out! MARS!"

I've attached that first image to the news item posted on the homepage. It's a small thumbnail (at the moment that's the best I've got) but you can still make out the wheel.

Personally though, I like the second distinct image (technically the second image was the larger version of the first) and I hope they have it posted somewhere soon. It is from a camera facing away from the Sun, so you actually see the shadow of Curiosity on Mars.

Time for bed now.
