Mars Rover "Curiosity" landing explained
Come Monday there may be an amazing new robotic explorer on Mars or there may be a new pile of junk. It all likely depends on many things going correctly in the minutes after the Mars Science Laboratory mission arrives at Mars and attempts to deploy the Curiosity rover from orbit.
