    The MSL on Curiosity basically yeeted itself to the rear of curiosity (within 2° of 180° of the heading of the rover) , and the rear obstacle cameras observers caught some of the plume. The mars recon satellite should have a picture of the MSL cratered somewhere aft of the rover, probably online before too long. Curiosity's is attached below.
    No way to reuse it, it only has enough fuel for that final suicide burn after the cables on the rovers are released by I believe 6 explosive bolts. Takes a ton of Delta V to get back to orbit, even on Mars.

    New images are slowly rolling in. Will be an HD video of the entire landing process eventually.

    Is it true you get 10min drone helicopter air time before you need to plug it back into a usb port.

    Probably. But this heli's entire mission is to see if it flys at all and gain data. The next one will be more impressive.

    Dang, how long does the data take to transfer from Mars to here?

    They're still on dsl so quite a while. Cable guys can be there on the Mars end to finish the fiber install between 9am and 5pm on a monday-friday sometime in the next 3 months

    Roughly 11 minutes currently. Varies based on the distance between Mars and Earth. Can take up to 22 minutes.
