At 1:30am Eastern, August 6th, Mars Science Laboratory's Curiosity Rover will land on Mars (on the long weekend, no less). And if the $2.5 billion mission doesn't end in a spectacular crash, the landing will look something like this.
Curiosity is one of the most complex pieces of robotic awesomeness we've ever sent beyond the Moon. It's on an extraordinary mission, employing Canadian technology, and its landing is a great reason to celebrate.
