Some of you might already be aware of this. But for those who don't...

Did you know NASA is just hours away from landing on the surface of mars with a robotic science station? Their web pages are littered with awesome animation of the landing and explanations on what the rover is searching for- evidence of water.

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/news/WhereIsCuriosity.html (up to the minute simulations on where the rover is presently)

Enjoy!

I knew they were doing something but didn't realize it was going down, now.
