In case you missed it, while the Olympics were being televised (on considerable time delay) from London, a few guys and even fewer women at a government agency managed to launch a piece of fragile technology from a planet spinning in orbit toward another planet spinning in orbit millions of miles away and had it land—softly—precisely where it was supposed to land. That’s like doing a perfect balance beam routine every day for 255 days—with an anvil on your back.
