Landing on the Red Planet at 3:55 p.m. EST Thursday, 2/18/21.

"An 11-minute lag in one-way radio transmission from Mars makes Earthbound control of the rover's descent impossible.

"The spacecraft is expected to pierce Mars' atmosphere at 12,000 miles per hour (19,300 kph) and angled to produce slight aerodynamic lift while jet thrusters adjust its trajectory.

"A jarring, supersonic parachute inflation to further slow the descent will give way to deployment of a jet-powered "sky crane" vehicle that will fly to a safe landing spot, hover above the surface while lowering the rover on tethers, then fly away."

I know the guy who was head of the project for the camera on the rover that shoots lasers at rocks and reads the plasmas that come off them. He works at LANL.

This, gentlemen, is what it feels like when doves cry.

But it is easier for a Lifted Ford to pass under the beam of a parking garage than it is for a Dodge Ram driver to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
