Congratulations NASA; The Curious Adventure of Curiosity Begins…

The rover Curiosity successfully landed on Mars at 10:32pm PDT yesterday.  Many of us at ClearDent tuned in and watched the landing live on NASA TV as we are all at hearts science and technology enthusiasts.

It was phenomenal to see how the work of teams of bright engineers and scientists overcame what is known as “7 minutes of terror” more than 8 months ahead of time, more than 550,000,000 kilometres away with their ingenious product – The Curiosity.

The landing inspires all of us who work in the technology industry to dare, and to do better.
We’ll be watching closely in the months and years to come.  We are “curious” on what it will discover.
