 What an amazing mission - whether ordained or random, I am in awe of the 
orbital mechanics that had to be comprehended, and calculated, for this to 
occur. There are no straight lines in space, particularly when always lifting 
off a spinning, orbiting planet.

 Yes, it's quite an achievement to land something the size of a fridge freezer 
onto a spinning object half a billion miles away that's only about 5 miles 

 A fine days work...

 No kidding. I was thinking that if humans can achieve something like that then 
there is no excuse for all the really, really stupid things they do back here 
on Earth.
