Watch the Mars Rover Launch Live: ", carrying NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory – the official name for the new rover – is ready for liftoff from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Currently, there’s a 70 percent chance of weather conditions being favorable for launch.
The one-ton rover carries 10 scientific instruments which will be used to closely examine the Gale Crater after it lands on Mars in August 2012. Curiosity’s findings will lay down the foundation for a possible future manned mission to Mars, and answer important questions about the Red Planet’s habitability."
