The space travelling robot has been folded up and sealed into its anti-germ container (to avoid letting germs out into the Martian ecosystem, the rover is sterilized and sealed up) in preparation for its launch, which is coming up soon.
The main thing this robot is curious about is the presence of microbial life, past or present, on the red planet.
You can keep track of Mars rover missions on the NASA web site, here
That thing is awesome!
I can't wait to hear about what Curiosity has to teach us.
maybe a lot of ufo sightings have been testings of NASA Mars craft (not to mention other 'secret' military type craft?)
