arcite writes "The latest and greatest Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Rover ”Curiosity”, an SUV sized rover packed to the gills with the latest scientific instruments and innovative landing system is set to launch sometime today. As the heaviest and largest Mars Rover yet, if it is successful in touching down on the red planet, will be the best bet yet for NASA to find signs of life.
