Yes, incredible accomplishment that. Loved the rocket cradle mechanism.
Amazing technology. The curiosity rover successfully used the same mechanism 8 years ago, which presumably means it was developed over 20 years ago. Interesting how the media is much more interested this time. That must be a good thing.
Both rovers are powered by tiny thermal nuclear generators (2.5kW for years). That doesn’t get some much coverage, presumably to avoid attention from the anti-everything conspiracy idiots.
