Curiosity Rover Set to Launch

NASA hopes to launch its newest Mars Rover, Curiosity, this morning if the weather stays clear over Florida. Curiosity, an SUV-sized rover equipped with a laser that can zap rocks to determine their chemical makeup, is NASA’s latest effort to determine if Mars ever offered a climate supporting life. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory offers a cool interactive graphic that allows users to explore the rover up close.
