I was under the impression that we will be seeing a feed from some camera on the probe itself.

But it was just people looking at monitors.

I heard about it and watched a time-lapse video of the landing (even though it was with the really low-resolution camera. I couldn't tell how close it was to the planet for much of it - those "mountains" I thought I saw could have just been rocks :XD:)

I've already defended this thing in some debates about it on the forums too :lol: But I will also agree that we can't keep landing stuff there forever if they never give us any concrete proof or real incentive to keep doing it. Hopefully this one will tell us more than what we already know. Otherwise I'd say to hell with Mars - lets start investigating Jupiter's moons :D
Watched it live on their website.

Hehe me too, i stayed up through the night and watched it the same way while following it live mode on 'Eyes on the solar system' (which is totally awesome btw) it was one hell of a thing to watch, Hollywood cannot come close to that level of drama!
