Landing in less than an hour.

And if you want extra commentary, watch this feed instead.
Hmmm…when I posted this, the countdown clock showed almost an hour. My bad.
Technically, it’s not ‘live’ anyway, unless you happen to be there. Just sayin…
What’s the time of landing again?
Thank You. Greatly appreciated.
Perseverance is on the surface of Mars and systems are nominal.
What we see happening actually happened 15 minutes earlier. As we all know.
A little over 11 minutes actually.
Weel, maybe not, depending on TV studio delays due to minimal manning grrrling diversity training. Reading from scripts with an OFWG interpreting.
Congratulation to NASA and JPL. Looked like a very nominal landing. High fives certainly deserved.
Some government projects work. Congratulations, NASA!
Landed successfully, 20:56 GMT
Here’s hoping that this success appeals to some sort of consciousness at NASA to encourage them to stick with what they do understand and leave climate to others who understand that.
GISS needs to either be disbanded, or its entire leadership reassigned and GISS put back on its original charter to study space weather. James Hansen’s pushing GISS to study Earth’s climate with computer models was criminal and an act of someone more committed to environmental activism than a scientist. He should have been reassigned in 1988 after his Senate testimony was merely a political stunt.
Agreed, wholeheartedly. There are few of us still around who remember that event well. A lot of fake news and bad science has passed under the bridge since 1988. Right from the beginning the IPCC said:
The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
This should have been a heads up that climate was not something that lends itself to government program and future plans. But they insisted on pursuing their modelling with using nonsense statements like the following …
Rather the focus must be upon the prediction of the probability distribution of the system’s future possible states by the generation of ensembles of model solutions.
… thereby justifying the models that can’t produce what science requires, predictions, not projections. This entire goat rodeo has developed from that moment of planned subterfuge in a Senate hearing room. They’ve known all along that it’s bad science but kept doing it regardless.
And all the scientific societies, including the APS, have played along. They have passed beyond shameful and entered culpable-negligence-land.
You’re right, but as I always tell the AGW true believers who insist on trotting out long lists of “Scientific” societies; they don’t actually do any science, but are merely social or political organizations with eyes on FUNDING. Besides, neither appeal to numbers nor appeal to authority are valid arguments. Any single unfalsified argument cancels all of them … and there are hundreds so far.
Wahoo! Congratulations to the NASA Perseverence Team on a job well done! Excellent engineering sets the scientists up for further successes.
In the school of planetary exploration, we are mere toddlers learning to walk. But walking leads to running! May our excellent engineering continue to hasten our exploratory footsteps!

Think they could use a server upgrade on this site. Probably running on some old Dell server installed in 2005.
The closed captioning was a little wacked. “your death is good”? UHF is good.
Despite taking massive phaser fire from Martian air defense forces and a direct hit from a photon torpedo, launched by China’s Tianmin 1 orbiter, the shields held and the flag of freedom fluters in breeze above the Martian capital of Barsoom.
So the Chinese PLA fired first? Remember that when they accuse the US of damaging / destroying their Jade Gate Rabbit. It’s all part of the PLAndemic.
Off to find ‘evidence’ of life, to slow down Elon.
What a wonderful success!
What I want to know is why the descent stage (the thing with the engines which lowered the rover down to the surface, ie the Sky crane) left to an uncontrolled landing on the surface?
I mean those parts were shipped a loooong way and could possibly have been reused in future missions instead of just being literally tossed away.
I too was wondering about the technicalities of disconnecting the Rover from the sky crane and then avoiding any collision of the two entities.
Amazing how excited primates get when they have a successful group outcome.
At the peak of this technical prowess, they still look and sound like a bunch of chimpanzees.
Arms flailing and screeching, like they’ve just killed a rival male intruder.
Say what you will, NASA came through when the chimps were down.
How does alarmis NASA justify the ‘carbon’ footprint of that mission? Perhaps Anthony could ask them for a copy of the full accounting of the CO2 damage. After all they must have it at hand given they fully intend offsetting the evil discharge. Wait silly me it’s only us that have to cease emitting . . .
By emitting think breathing.
