Mars Science Labratory edges closer to “Seven Minutes of Terror”

By » Sun, July 29 2012

The Mars Science Laboratory is on final approach to the planet. Once inside the Martian atmosphere, the Mini Cooper sized Curiosity rover will be lowered to the surface by rocket powered crane on August 5th. Curiosity’s mission objectives will be: measure surface radiation, search for organic compounds in the Martian soil, determine the state and cycle of water and carbon dioxide on the planet.

I totally want a rocket crane.
