But wait! Before we sadly mope away from NASA, there’s something new to get thrilled about: The Curiosity, the most advanced rover yet, landed on Mars!

The spacecraft touched down successfully last night and a room full of scientists that had been working on the risky project for a long time, cheered, hugged and even cried.
