Staying up late for the “7 Minutes of Terror”

In the next hour the Curiosity rover will either land or crash on Mars. I’m staying up for it, even though the results may not be known for several hours or even several days.

And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, The Atlantic has an excellent article on tonight’s landing.

And NASA’s own video that explains why everyone is calling it “7 minutes of terror”.
