“100 Days and Counting to NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover Landing”
NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory, carrying the one-ton Curiosity rover, will be within 100 days from its appointment with the Martian surface. At that moment, the mission has about 119 million miles (191 million kilometers) to go and is closing at a speed of 13,000 mph (21,000 kilometers per hour).
The human shuttle missions may now officially be over but that doesn’t mean we can’t confide in our robotic counterparts.
I’m eagerly awaiting for the moment we hear back from Curiosity after it lands on Mars which would make it 3 out of 3 for NASA’s successful rover missions to the red planet.
I’m such a geek but I don’t care…THERE’S GONNA BE ANOTHER ROBOT ON MARS YA’LL!
