I've always been intrigued by outer space, some they that my head is in outer space most of the time and those people DO have a valid point. NASA's next Mars rover is due to land in just a few days, and the huge robot's handlers can hardly wait. The 1-ton Curiosity rover, the heart of NASA's $2.5 billion Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission, is slated to touch down inside the Red Planet's Gale Crater on Sunday night (Aug. 5). Excitement about the big event has been building as NASA have been working on the mission for five years or more. I am a firm believer that we are not the only ones out there, now I'm not sure if "others" are hanging out in Mars or some other planet but I think there is other life out there...somewhere. If you could send somebody to Mars (permanently) celebrity or non-celebrity, who would you want it to be?
