VIDEO: The happiest group of NASA employees you'll see today

Mars Landing! Whoo!

THE MARS LANDING by NASA’s Curiosity rover in the early hours of this morning was exciting news for a lot of people –  but none more so than the people who had worked to make the landing happen.

This video shows the scenes in the NASA control room in Pasadena, California as the news was confirmed that the Curiosity rover was successful.

There’s a lot of whooping, some awkward-looking inter-employee hugs, and even some double high fives. Aw.
