I'm really in the same boat as +Gaurav Singh. I had just met him last year at the #TCSummit, and I've heard a few stories about him before. I'm sorry to hear about his passing, my condolences go to Warren's family.

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.
