Mars Landing

As NASA's "Curiosity" prepares to land on mars in a few hours, and all the cool people are there to tweet about it, I can't help but be nostalgic about the time when I was cool too.

15 years ago NASA's Pathfinder spacecraft landed on Mars. I was working on the "IRCache" project at NLANR and UC San Diego. We used our web caching sites to set up some mirrors of NASA's pathfinder pages. For you young'uns, this was before CDNs and Akamai.

The best thing was that I was interviewed by the New York Times and quoted in the article!



Those were the days!

Good luck, NASA, JPL, MSL, and Curiosity!
