Video of the raid on Megaupload’s founder Kim Dotcom’s mansion.
For more than six months there have been claims and counterclaims about what happened in January when New Zealand police raided the mansion of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom. Now video of the event has been released to the public and it includes helicopters, armed officers, dog units and multiple police vehicles – Hollywood style.
NASA’s Curiosity Rover successfully lands on Mars!
Over 8 months, 13 thousand miles per hour, a parachute to slow it to around 1000 mph then retro rockets to slow it even further, then a new tricky “sky crane” maneuver which dropped the rover onto the ground using cables attached to the retro rocket cage, then the cables removing it’s self and the rocket cage flying off to crash safely leaving the largest rover ever built landing safely on Mars, the size of a small car.
Congratulations to NASA and can’t wait to see what Curiosity will bring us.
