It hardly seems like a year has passed since I joined 2000 of my fellow Planetary Society members to watch the landing of the Curiosity rover at our Planetfest celebration in Pasadena. I will never forget the outpouring of emotion, excitement, and energy that occurred in that room in the minutes after Curiosity touched down safely on Mars.

To celebrate Curiosity's one year on Mars today, I'm embedding some of my favorite moments from from Planetfest 2012. You can find all of these and more on our YouTube page.
