Curiosity transmitted Hazcam images confirming orientation. Due to the Mars-Earth distance at the time of landing and the limited speed of radio commuinication signals, the landing was not registered on Earth for another 14 minutes. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter sent a photograph of Curiosity descending under its parachute, taken by its HiRISE camera, during the landing procedure.
Indeed th Mars landing is a major feet for the whole humanity and we all needs to be proud.
It reminds the Appollo mission, back in 1969 when United States's Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the Moon on 20 July 1969. I remember hearing the reports of landing live on radio when I was a boy.
Proud of the Mars landing achievement, NASA team responded- 'We're NASA and We Know It' and they blended the landing event into a music video parody styled after the leopard-thonged LMFAO's music video "Sexy and I Know It.".
Objective of Mar's mission is not to find life on Mars, but to do a series of experiements regarding minerals, rocks, soils, and environment conditions on mars and see whether it is conducive for life.
No doubt, Man will futher advance in his quest for exploration in outer space.
I would like to turn your attenstion to Bible on this:
"For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else". (Bible - Isiah 45:18)
God has created the Earth for man to be inhabited, no other plantes. There is nothing like the earth nowhere in the Universe in God's plan regarding man.
Again, even if man reach the outer stellar spaces, bible says - He will be brought down.
"Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD". (Bible Obadiah 1:4)
And Jesus said :
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36)
