At around 1:31 am this morning, I saw the furious tweeting and internet frenzy on the landing of Mars Science Lab, AKA Curiosity, on the Red Planet. This, I thought to myself, is a historic moment that I’ve been waiting to see for the last few months!
To quote a meme featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson…
“I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome science is.”
I wasn’t even sure I could get to sleep earlier this morning…the collective nerdgasm on Twitter was just that intense.
