Today’s successful landing of NASA’s Mars InSight lander was a cause for celebration on Twitter.
There was good-natured snark from SarcasticRover and from Matt Inman, the Seattle cartoonist behind The Oatmeal’s Matt Inman. And there were heartfelt congratulations from the space community’s celebrities, including SpaceX founder Elon Musk and Bill Nye the Science Guy.
Here are just a few of the tweeted highlights:
