Where will you be?

On August 6, at 5:31 am Universal Time?

Me?  I'll be nervously picking up a bad habit or two (an eye twitch, biting my fingernails, tapping my foot annoyingly and suddenly getting a major case of phantom allergies) while I breathlessly watch this unfold.

Are you excited?  You better be.  NASA has never used RCS jets on any Mars landing to date and they are about to do so (out of necessity).  It's a high-risk/high-failure venture and it's coming to a red planet near you.
