Curiosity — Robot Geologist and Chemist in One!

Well, there couldn’t be a better word to describe the Mars Science Laboratory, which is on the final stages of its flight to Mars.

Brush up on all your Curiosity trivia at http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/mission/

What I learned: Curiosity weighs 900 kilograms, or about 2,000 pounds and has less than 800,000 miles to the finish line – a heavyweight champion on a ultra-marathon!
