Future Exploration of Mars Determined by NASA Curiosity Rover

| No Comments

On Sunday a NASA spacecraft called Curiosity will be ready to land on Mars, after traveling over 350 million miles, according to the Washington Post.

NASA officials say it is going to be a very risky landing however, and the spacecraft will have a relatively small safe area to land in.

The mission has cost $2.5 million, and the features of Curiosity are much more advanced than previous technologies, but are also more complicated creating more room for error.

According to the New York Times, failure of this mission would mean starting over for NASA.
