I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have only been a boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay before me all undiscovered.

Curiosity has a fandom and ships. The flight director, Bobak Ferdowski, has fanart and an fyeah blog.

Tumblr, this is why you are my favorite website.

YES! CURIOSITY FANDOM! We should write songs and ship it with Opportunity. Though the size disparity might be problematic. 

Curiosity/Opportunity OTP!  And then they need to go save Spirit and make it an OT3!

LOVE that the internet has collectively downed NASA’s websites, even at this time of night, to geek out over Curiosity.  WAY TO GO WORLD!  WAY TO GO NASA!

We have wheels on Mars!

NASA scientist reacting to the Curiosity rover’s successful landing on the surface of Mars.  There are astronomers, physicists and engineers weeping at JPL right now. Really moving.
