Whether or not you thought Will.I.Am's Reach For The Stars was a great choice for the first song ever to be debuted on Mars, you have to admit that the technical process behind it was fascinating!

Just the idea of having something on Mars right now that we can interact with is so fab that our science boners are about to get out of control!

Well, thanks to the successful debut of the song on August 28th, we're getting a half hour TV special with the backstory behind the creative and technical knowledge that came together to pull it off!

It'll be on Discovery's SCIENCE Channel on 9/19 — amazing!

Science! Science! Science!

Curiosity Killed The Cat… And Then It Conquered Time And Space To Land On Mars

Filed under: Etc.Inspiration

For those of you who requiring an extra bit of encouragement this week, we invite you to watch the Curiosity rover land on Mars.

Its nine month, 352 million mile journey from our planet to the next culminated in an unpredictable seven minute landing sequence that turned out to be more thrilling than just about any fiction we can remember.

Curiosity is a manmade mobile science lab designed to travel to Mars, land without smashing into a trillion pieces, keep a keen robotic eye out for signs of past or present life, and then report back it's findings.

Watch the animated simulation of its landing cut with reaction shots of scientists and engineers watching the live drama unfold (above).

These men and women spent the better part of their careers constructing a marvelous piece of machinery but, on this day, they could do nothing but hope and pray.

We won't trivialize this momentous achievement with John Carter jokes or an ill-suited hyperbole. The video speaks for itself.

On some days, it's just inspiring to be part of the human race.
