I liveblogged the whole Mars Curiosity Landing on a Hubpages hub

    The last time I followed an event live like this, comet Shoemaker-Levy-9's impact on Jupiter, the web was in its infancy, and blogging wasn't yet possible.

    I'd created a hub on the Mars Curiosity landing. Tonight, I've been following the whole thing minute by minute, watching the live broadcast from NASA /JPL headquarters in Pasadena, and following the telemetry from the Curiosity spacecraft during final approach. It was nailbiting!

    I was uploading vids, screencaps, the first pictures back from the rover, and notes on the broadcast as it was happening. I kept editing and then republishing the hub, with an occasional Tweet as stuff was happening.

    I know, I shouldn't self-promote, but dangit, this was exciting!
