Congratulations, NASA!

While I'm of the opinion the agency needs to get out of the business of human spaceflight and let the private sector take over, it still has "the right touch" when it comes to unmanned exploration.  You simply have to be impressed with the skill and effort it takes to send a car-sized rover on a nine-month trip to another world, and park it where you intended.  (Not to mention reorienting a satellite already in place so you can capture a photo of the probe's re-entry!)

And with the initial test photos out of the way, on with the exploration...
