    There isn't a whole lot to say about this because this is a live feed and it's about five hours away, But for those early birds like me, Here is the live feed,



    It's better to watch history unfold than to read about it later imo.

    I didn't know you could post a live stream video. I had problems with that in the past and would just post the link.

    There was a time when you couldn't post a live link, So it used to be that way in the last year YT has changed how they do live streams ;) a consequence of that is, Now they may be posted on message boards

    Aweomse, The irony of it all was, I missed it, lol This is great news though, Those rovers where getting pretty old and with old equipment, I believe this craft has a laser on it that can analyze atomic structure at least getting the base elements, This will do so much for our knowledge of mars and it's past.

    To give this thread some substance, now that the live event is over, The Insight craft has a seismometer on it this will actually be listening to the ground and record every seismic event, Like meteor impacts, Here is a short Video about what Insight is.



    Things like this always have a large amount of exhilaration for me, I can't wait to see what kinds of things we can learn from insight.

    There's a man on mars that cleans the solar panels. I hope he has the time and funding to maintain Insight's lander. I want to officially invite him to become a member of AE. :)
