Let's not forget we are still reaching toward Mars. Curiosity, NASA's scientifically equipped rover lifted off on November 26 on its way to the Red Planet. I still hold my breath in awe each time a launch is underway. We'll have to wait until August to see how it goes when Curiosity lands at its destination.
This particular rover is a spacial one. Its goal is to find and determine how feasible it will be for humans to actually spend time on Mars.
I Have a a couple of posts up on my blog relating to this mission. I'd love to hear what you think. Stop by anytime.
