"We're Safe on Mars!"

This is old news, but it's become my new video pick-me-up: simulation of the Curiosity landing intercut with the actual scenes at Mission Control. The resolution of the tensions once the safe landing is confirmed is what slays me:

Just look at their faces ... makes me tear up happy every time.

I love how they're all just so thrilled with each other. There's a little scene right after the director says they're in powered flight, and this one guy looks so relieved, and the man and woman on each side of him are patting him ... I guess that part of the mission must have been his. It was wonderful how his colleagues noticed and were being so kind.

Really lovely slice of humanity. And yes, makes you think about how many hours of people's lives went into this.
