It is incredible, at least to me, that human beings made this happen. That real, fallible, imperfect people were able to do this. The sheer absurdity of taking on a monumental task, and the arrogance to believe it could actually be done must surely be motivating factor for the engineers of NASA. I've watched Seven Minutes of Terror hundreds of times, and still can not wrap my brain around it. I truly believe the success of this project to be one of mankind's  greatest achievements.
it would be ironic if we introduced earth bacteria to a dead planet that had never had life whilst looking for signs of life on said planet... then our civilization collapsed... mars life adapted into intelligent beings and sent a probe to earth (the now dead planet) looking for signs of life.
