cool pan shot...
...and it looks like the first thing Curiosity did was to spin a doughnut. Awriiiigghhht.
Get'cher motor runnin' (daaahhhhh dah dah dah!)

The driving team at NASA has taken Curiosity out for its first spin around the landing site ahead of its first road trip, as well as shooting up the area with a laser to get the initial readings about what exactly it is trundling across.

Something I've moaned about before. Time is a derived unit, linguine per percentage of the maximum speed of a sheep in a vacuum. This gives one linguine per percentage of the maximum speed of a sheep in a vacuum equal to approximately 4.66 microseconds. I have christened this unit the Cowell, being the same time it takes the fearless reality TV judge to reduce an aspiring starlet to tears.
But nobody listens to me...
...a driving team.
Can you imagine?
"You're driving too fast!"
"Look out for that hole!"
"You missed the exit!"

"There's a police martian hiding behind that hovercraft".
All the usual stuff, but this time from a committee.
