The folks over at Bad Astronomy really put it best, "Never, ever forget: we did this. This is what we can do."

Think on this, and think on it carefully: you are seeing a manmade object falling gracefully and with intent to the surface of an alien world, as seen by another manmade object already circling that world, both of them acting robotically, and both of them hundreds of million of kilometers away.

You can view full images and get a nice collection of links over at Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD).
