Science, the human mind and how the two are interwoven continually amaze me! I truly believe nothing is impossible; just check out this short 5-minute video on how we landed a 2-ton rover on Mars. The landing involved a supersonic parachute and sky crane, along with the painstakingly precise planning on the parts of all the engineers and scientists involved - so cool! Enjoy :)
