Where were you at 10:45 pm PDT Monday night?  Watching Olympics?  Sleeping? I was standing and clapping with the rest of the JPL team as Curiosity landed on Mars.
You want to see how good the team is at Nasa / JPL Look at this image. Curiosity during descent to Mars Surface still attached to the parachute. Picture taken by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
