Explore Mars Executive Director Chris Carberry in +The Huffington Post  'When Kennedy pledged to "go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard," America had a total of 15 minutes of human spaceflight experience. Just imagine what we can do now if we only "choose" to do it. Humans on Mars by 2030 can and should be our next goal.'

In the +Houston Chronicle again, and as Eric Berger reports, public interest has definitely spiked!

"As the landing date nears, public interest has spiked, with this certainly becoming NASA's most closely watched move since last summer's la
unch of space shuttle Endeavour, which marked the end of the shuttle program.

As part of an online campaign to promote awareness of the mission, GetCurious.com has placed large red boulders designed to look like Mars rocks in eight U.S. cities. Houston's sits in front of City Hall."

Explore Mars president Artemis Westenberg in +US News & World Report

"Curiosity will bring us answers, but we'll also get more questions," she says. "This is a prelude to more. Rovers and robots can only do so much. In the end, we will have to send humans."

LOL you can barely tell though, Google needs to replace their Olympics doodles with a full NASA one.

What did you all think of Curiosity's landing? As of right now Curiosity has been on Mars for 13 hours and 16 minutes!

You can visit www.GetCurious.com anytime to find out how long the rover has been on the red planet - at the end it'll be nearly two years!

Picture perfect; so perfect that HiRISE caught it where it was expected to be.

Looks like Mars was in a good mood yesterday and didn't throw a curve ball, like a dust storm...};-)
