The Crack of Dawn

Where I was when Curiosity Landed
At a little after 6AM in the city of Sheffield in the UK, I dragged myself to the living room, pausing briefly to admire Venus, and got my cousin's complicated satellite tv started. I guess it was late night in California. The waiting time was a bit tense, but the sight of the first image, proof that the landing was successful made it all worthwhile.
Our LightSail test mission was successfully completed and our Kickstarter campaign ended June 26th, raising $1.24 million dollars for LightSail's 2016 solar sailing mission! Miss the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to donate? You can!
