I followed it on NASA TV (I'm from Europe). I'm disappointed nobody took the opportunity to shout "Dropship inbound!" when they received signal of the backshell separation.

I'm still watching, 1255PDT. I watched the landing coverage on the NASA channel at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry - we had more than 1000 people show up. When JPL mission control was shouting and hugging, we were too. Forgot to bring peanuts to share - next time!

Success!

And not just any skycrane, but a ROCKET* skycrane.

It's a nuclear powered robot with a frickin' laser beam attached to its head so it will pretty much vaporize the shit of that rock! (Using technology created at Los Alamos, ChemCam will focus a beam of infrared light onto a target from its French-built laser, vaporizing it with over a million watts of energy from up to 23 feet away.)

I'm from Holland so this morning I got up, made a sandwich, turned to the livestream, cheered, and got off to work :)

I would have loved to see a nice clear videofeed from Opportunity following the entire process, from "Superfast Mecha-comet"-stage to "Übercool autonomous flying rocket airlifting a robot onto the surface"-stage.

Spirit abandoned? No - Curiosity is a nuclear powered autonomous robot armed with a laser and a high speed drill. Curiosity travels at 4 cm/second, or 3.5km per earth day. The two Rovers are 2300km apart. So Curiosity may decide to ignore orders from aliens on another planet, and take off cross country to rescue its abandoned brother (in less than 2 earth years). They will then travel together to rescue Opportunity.

With the laser and drill, Curiosity can smelt local iron to fashion robot arms for its brothers. Then they will build a race of Martian robots, then rockets, then return to earth, destroying us all with their death beams.

Yes, it will end badly. But not for the rovers.

Ponder Stibbons is seen wearing a T-shirt with the text:

"Actually I am a rocket wizard"

in The Last Hero, by Terry Pratchett. (Couldn't find a web image, though.)

I am not not sure if this supports the hypothesis. I quite like Ponder Stibbons, but I wouldn't say he is cool.

Watts is power, not energy. You'd have to multiply that by the amount of time the laser is on to get energy.

A few things strike me as mistaken with the above comment:
  • The United States as a whole has not consciously arranged socio-economic conditions to hurt minority youths. (This is not to claim that passive acceptance of conditions is not blameworthy. Passing by a drowning person without helping is blameworthy [I receive the impression that "only" a small portion are even hostilely passive, e.g., saying "he should have learned to swim before falling into the pool"] even if less blameworthy than intentionally directing the person to walk on a purposely more slippery area beside the pool or actively pushing the person into the pool knowing the person cannot swim.)
  • Some portion of sending minority youths to prison seems to be intended to protect other minority youths from "being pushed into the pool." (This is not to claim that there is not injustice in how criminal behavior is handled--nor that protection of the more wealthy or even "preferred" race is given more weight--or in how people who have paid their debt are treated.)
  • The implication that education is equivalent to college is also somewhat problematic. A college degree can act as a useful certification of having certain skills or abilities, but such seems to be a very expensive and rather imprecise certification.

Although I am culpably passive in this area (e.g., not offering the limited tutoring ability I have or [with a perhaps more understandable cowardice] not visiting prisoners) and have some racist feelings (though, I think, irrational cultural biases are more significant and I think I used to be more sexist than racist [my sexism has decreased as I have encountered a number of men who show significant gentleness, kindness, and compassion and have observed a falling short in such of a number of women])--despite my blameworthy failings, I do not think my perception of the U.S. as primarily passively racist is merely a result of my racism nor the racism of my environment.

I would like to see more "minority" representation in areas I admire--for selfish reasons of helping to combat my (less acute) racism and of increasing the number of admirable people and thoughts that I can appreciate and for slightly less selfish reasons of social health (as a human being I receive some pleasure from a more glorious humanity). I do not think that inaccurate blame is helpful, and I do think that encouragement must be associated with accurate blame. (I do not mean to discourage the poster's righteous indignation, but grace and truth are both necessary.)

(Yes, there are overwhelmingly many recent-ish examples of very stupid racism [where being uncomfortable around and avoiding contact with people of a different race is stupid racism and very stupid racism includes active verbal abuse and worse].)

I would also note that xkcd readers probably have an intellectual bias. The vocational bias that intellectuals can fall into is as wrong as the vocational bias that priests are more holy than carpenters. The wellness of the heart is more important than the excellence of the mind, and terribly often poverty and racism breed the heart diseases of despair and resentment in their "victims" and pride and despising in those on the "other side".

(That was a long rant, especially for a first post.)

Actually, the hypothesis doesn't allow for rocket wizards because "wizard" is not an inanimate common noun.
