‘Wanderers’ - an MSL/Curiosity commemoration print
Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is a robotic mission to Mars launched by NASA on November 26, 2011, that will attempt to land a Mars rover called Curiosity on the surface of Mars. Currently en route to the planet, it is scheduled to land in Gale Crater at about 05:31 UTC on August 6, 2012. Curiosity rover’s objectives include determining Mars’ habitability, studying its climate and geology, and collecting data for human missions.
