MemeSL Contest!

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
I decided to start having fun with MSL pics and make meme-like statements on top.

Adi introduced us to the rover within the context of the ongoing thirtieth olympiad, defined the word that serves as its name: “Curiosity” warned us about the “7 minutes of terror” during entry/descent/landing, and gave us a guide to viewing the landing and some fun pre-landing activities. Meanwhile, I chatted....
