    Pah, they weren't even trying to pretend it was real. Crappy pixelated fuzzy images of the descent in a world where smartphones have better cameras.

    If that's the current state of the art for real-time video rendering they can stuff it up their moon.

    Of course, afterwards they released decent footage, once their 3d rendering had been completed.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    In fact the impact appeared to be rather harder than previous US landings and that sort of landing on tetra-firma would have been fatal.
