Yes watched it yesterday. Next step is getting a soil sample putting it on the surface where it will be picked up and a rocket brings it back to Earth, pretty amazing.

Was it real or simulation landing? Cameras usually record and wait to transmit. Then NASA has to reconstruct before release.
They had some really amazing simulations. They also had some pictures from an orbiting platform, one showing the descent under the 'chute. And some early pics already transmitted of the landscape. I don't think it's waiting, except that more pics will be coming.

Good one Sidebite. Wind sounds just like it does in Texas. Dry and dusty like Texas, even has potholes too. You really expect Mars to be made of different stuff? Another expensive hunk of scrap on Mars.
