Yep, pretty cool. I'm looking forward to the images/video. And of course, future flights.

With a Norwegian pilot, even smile

The awesome is big with this one. First flight of a rotorcraft. On another planet, 33 MILLION miles away! And it had a piece of fabric from the Wright Flyer with it.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Well said semmern.

Quite a milestone, small steps...
