Live blogging Curiosity's Landing
People are eating peanuts for luck.
1 minute to separation of cruise ship
Cruise stage separation successful
Control rockets warming up, 7 minutes to re-entry
5 minutes to re-entry all well
Of course, due to light speed delay, it's all over for real. Time travel is heck!
Curiosity has begun guided re-entry, Odessy is picking up Curiosity!!
2 minutes to landing
Parachutes opened, all under controlled,
Under powered flight, sky range ready
