Curmudgeon’s Corner: No Ifs Ands Or Buts

This week on the Curmudgeon’s Corner podcast Sam and Ivan start out with an old fashioned lightning round covering the Olympics, Gawker, EpiPens and more. Then of course they settle in to talk about this week’s developments in the race for the Presidency. Looking for your weekly fix of Clinton and Trump craziness? We have it for you here as always. Oh, and Sam complains about cars on the beach and annual reviews.

They Pulled It Off!

I watched the whole Curiosity landing live on a couple different video feeds, with and without commentary.  I turned down the commentary for most of the “7 minutes of terror”…  just wanted to hear the control room raw.

Given the complexity of this landing, and all the many many places where something could have gone wrong, I was fully expecting for something to fail.  But so far it looks like the landing was pretty much perfect*.  That is just incredible.  Amazing job by everybody involved, who have worked for many years to make this happen.

* Although we won’t know for sure until everything gets woken up and tested over the next few days.
