Things are hectic and busy here on Earth. We may have disrupted the seeemingly eternal atmospheric streams by warming up the planet. We seem to be really terrible at dealing with a viral threat we’ve known about for a long time. We’re doing a lot of bad things as species.
But today I won’t be bitching about our government failing to distribute vaccines handed to them on a silver platter. I’ll be admiring the work of another government agency that did amazingly organizing resources and talent and will be landing the Perseverance rover on Mars at 19:15 UTC.
