This is great, the gadget of all gadgets. This may be as significant as any space mission since the moon landing and early shuttle missions -- especially from an engineering point of view.

This is really a great achievement, but I don't know about seeing it live.  I did get up early to watch the lunar impact mission LCROSS in `09, and I really wish I had stayed up to watch Shoemaker Levy 9 (predictions said that it would not be visible).  In reading my post it now seems like I'm the typical Action Movie audience.

This is a great engineering success story.  The engineers involved deserve to be superstars.  Certainly they have contributed more to our society than Justin Bieber has.  They are the people who should be on posters on our kids' walls.
