Pasadena, Calif. - "Touchdown confirmed!"
At Mission Control, happy workers jumped for joy, high-fived and hugged.
Scientists had been waiting for confirmation that the rover "Curiosity" had landed on Mars.
Curiosity touched down just after 1:30 a.m.
It will spend the next 2 years taking soil samples to see if the planet could support life.
Nearly all of the images that will be taken on Mars will be captured by digital sensors made by True-Sense Imaging on Lake Avenue in Rochester.
The 9-year-old company is a spin-off of Kodak.
