Do the math 2.2-2.5 billion cost/300 million people in USA.  About $7 or $8 and some change.  But I already paid my taxes, so I am covered.

Yes indeed!  Quite an accomplishment, especially given the complexity of this mission.  I watched the live stream on NASA TV (it was at a much more reasonable hour out here).  Quite exciting to feel a part of it all.

"Bird" Taylor told us at the BBAA meeting this past Thursday that VASC will be open Sunday night from 11pm until after the scheduled landing at 1:30 am, and will show NASA-TV to follow the EDL (Entry, Descent, and Landing). Take your telescope and get in free at 10pm, and set up on the 3rd floor porch for public viewing (if anyone wants to tear themselves away from NASA-TV).
