The live stream of NASA’s Curiosity rover landing garnered more interest than primetime Sunday television, Ustream says. A spokesperson told Mashable that 3.2 million people in total had checked the stream at some point during the landing, with a peak of 500,000 people watching at the same time. That’s higher than the estimated viewing numbers for CNN during Sunday primetime, which came in at 426,000, or MSNBC, which had an audience of 365,000 viewers over age two. Ustream’s peak audience was lower only than that of Fox, which had an audience of 803,000.
Cool. Take a minute to think of HOW AWESOME IT IS TO HAVE A ROVER ON MARS!!! You need to perfect of the maths, engineering, mechanics, politics which requires careful planning, huge teams and precision. And dont forget the fact that its like a couple of billion miles away. And the fact that it needs to have so much fuel to be able to reach mars gravitatinal field!
This is very cool. I wish i could create this with some photo editing tools

Jennifer Hom began life as a Chinese American girl in suburban Long Island, New York. As a minority with few friends, she found happiness in drawing fairies, unicorns, magical flying unicorns, princesses, and flowers. With the help of a terribly optimistic mother, she used her countless drawings of magical beings to enroll at the Rhode Island School of Design. Now graduated with a BFA in illustration and a sweet gig at Google, she managed to find a home with climate control. She is still Chinese American, but wants to be a Broadway star.
