    Do you just work for Lockheed or are you one of the braintrusts that imagine all of the incredible stuff that they come up with?

    Either way, thanks for keeping us out in the forefront of technology.

    Mars Science Laboratory Entry, Descent, and Landing Simulator

    This is a downloadable simulator from NASA. It presents a view of the MSL as though you were in a spacecraft nearby. You can see the MSL, the solar system, Mars, and Mars Odyssey, the satellite orbiting Mars, from different angles. You can watch it in Preview Mode or LIVE Mode.

    http://eyes.nasa.gov/

    This video shows you what it looks like.
    Go to 28:45.

    I don't recall stating that EVERYONE who worked there was "autistic".

    People with High Functioning forms of autism like aspergers syndrome DO however migrate to that type of vocation.

    Tell me do you know anyone who fits the characteristics of someone who is high functioning ?
