  • TEAM CELEBRATES: NASA photo of happiness after rover landing.

Much celebration at NASA in the wee hours over the successful rover landing on Mars.

Said President Obama:

Tonight’s success, delivered by NASA, parallels our major steps forward towards a vision for a new partnership with American companies to send American astronauts into space on American spacecraft. That partnership will save taxpayer dollars while allowing NASA to do what it has always done best — push the very boundaries of human knowledge. And tonight’s success reminds us that our preeminence — not just in space, but here on Earth — depends on continuing to invest wisely in the innovation, technology, and basic research that has always made our economy the envy of the world.

This is one of those shared achievements, isn't it?
