That's probably all we're going to see until later today. Earth's gone around the bend on Mars and won't be back for a few hours.

Before they cut the mic, they said they had a few more once they get the color decoded. They had to have 76 different little explosions and over 600 maneuvers all having to go PERFECTLY for this to happen. Talk about an unqualified success! :)

Even more so when one realizes how many intricacies were involved in making it happen, comms link is a half hour round-trip and everything was programmed so perfectly that they didn't even have to do a software or firmware update on that last part of the trip. Magnificent!
