What exactly is Curiosity, other than another Mars rover? Originally called the Mars Science Lab (MSL), Curiosity is a giant rover whose main mission is to search for evidence that Mars may once had the "basic building blocks necessary for microbial life to evolve." (Steve Gorman and Irene Klotz). This is also NASA's first astrobiology mission since the 1970's.
Congrats to NASA, the Jet Propulsion Lab, and everyone who worked for the success of the Curiosity rover!
