The first pictures from the Curiosity van sized Mars Rover should be available by midnight FTT. One half hour before that, about twenty minutes from now, NASA will know if the Rover made it safely to the surface.

2.5 billion dollars worth of rover. Everything crossed for the 7 minutes of hell.

A total success. With the experiments over the next 2 years and the God Particle discovery we are in for an exciting time for science.
