I am curious - Mars

The Mars rover Curiosity has safely landed on Mars.

The 2000-pound (910kg) vehicle, the size of a small car, now begins what is planned as a two-year mission focused on the question of if there ever was or could at some time be life on Mars.

It joins Opportunity, now in the ninth year of a mission that was planned to last for 90 days.

And the geek smiles.

Footnote: What with all this, it's probably appropriate that there have been a spate of new reports about Roswell 1947.

Two crashes at Roswell? Ability to live on Mars? So, in about two years ET can debunk or illuminate a few missing pieces from this puzzle.
