Nasa perseverance robot- landing tonight

Anyone else excited about this? This is possibly the single most important space exploration mission since the moon landings. A sophisticated robot where the primary mission will be to hunt out signs of life. It will touch down in a mind boggling difficult maneuver that could all go very expensively wrong. I will be watching live later through my fingers. I actually feel a little stressed about it! Anyone else going to watch the show later?

Much clearer. High res, in colour. Plus the whole landing was recorded with sound (which will take a couple of days to download). Perseverance has loads of high res cameras. The issue is bandwidth to download all the data.
The first photo was just a quick low res "look I'm here" shot.
