So who else is bummed that Curiosity after making possibly the best entrance ever, sadly did not bring any recovery gear or spares for Opportunity and Spirit. Come on NASA, if you're gonna sklycrane a 6x6 all the way to mars, mind as well patch up the little buddys right?

Was the lighting too bad in the studio to use the actual footage of it landing? :p
Maybe the guys who so expertly did the sound stage footage for the Apollo moon landings have since retired or passed on...

I like to look at it this way, if NASA put so much effort into faking the moon landing, why haven"t we seen any other great triumphs, given the technological leaps that have occurred since?

Just hit me.... there is a perfectly good reason why they did not plan on a recovery as part of this mission.

It's obvious that by now the Jawa! would have dismantled them and sold parts off as scrap

Curiosity's first hi-res shot. Better get the Paris Dakar sand anchor.

Boy, you'd think they would have ironed out that wrinkle before they took a pic of that Sahara tourist poster with a 1st gen IPhone!
