Are you following Curiosity on Twitter and/or Facebook? Indications are it may be a week or more before all the testing is done to make sure things are working.

Massive sigh of relief... Whedon signs for Avengers 2, should be great as long as Marvel can get Guardians of the Galaxy right, which I trust them to do. Also, Whedon back to television developing Marvel Universe TV show. Exciting times for Marvel fans.

It's not easy to send high quality images from that far away, they have to relay the images from the rover to the MRO orbiting the planet, which they have to wait for it to come above the horizon for.

I believe the rover itself has a high fidelity antenna for them to send the higher bandwith stuff directly to earth when MRO is not available, but that is pending them doing the diagnostics/calibration on the other instruments first.

I believe soon we're going to be having full-clolor 1600x1200 resolution images and video (or something close to that resolution)

The previous images you have seen from Mars are all in black and white too, they are just colorized. Imagine sending a really high rez photo over the slowest internet connection on earth, that's pretty much what you are dealing with.

If they drink the Waters of Mars, I'm giving up on this planet.

(I really hope somebody gets the reference. )

Google's Olympic doodles.

(Noticed that there's an alternate for 8/6 with Curiosity on skycrane rather than blimp.)

Significantly.

Oh, and does the plush toy say "Exterminate" when you squeeze it? If so, that might be the best thing to ever happen.
