I can't ever remember not wanting to be a scientist.
This whole mission has surpassed all of our expectations.
We need to drive like hell and get to the hills before the winter sets in.
When we opened our eyes, we saw bedrock exposed in the walls of the crater.
We didn't know if the rover could climb up or down the hills of the crater.
Having been given that public trust, we have a responsibility to share with the public.
We're stunned by the diversity of rocks. This stuff looks like it was put into a blender.
That's really what science is just trying to figure stuff out, and I like figuring stuff out.
You create a pile of dirt and then drive over it. We may have to learn to drive all over again.
The rocks, to a great extent, look swept clean. It's a much cleaner surface than what we had a right to hope for.
