This image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter marks the first time ever one spacecraft has photographed another one in the act of landing on Mars.
This is definitely a picture for the history books. It is an unfettered reflection of human ingenuity in play!!
