This is an incredible achievement, everyone should be extremely proud to be part of a civilization that can do this kind of exploration. It is very very very hard to do what they made look easy last night. Don't forget that one of two rovers launched in 2003 is still exporing Mars, and Curiosity could be exploring for Decades. If you have or know children I encourage you to go to the NASA website and watch the landing video with them. I watched it live on NASA TV and it was so fast and exciting I nearly fainted sitting down.
