Curiosity, the Largest Rover Ever Sent to Space, Set to Make ‘Grand Entrance’ on Mars: VIDEO


Last November, I posted video of the NASA 'Curiosity' probe as it blasted off to Mars.

This Sunday night, the Mini-Cooper-sized probe will reach the red planet and hopefully begin sending back data that will help determine if there was ever life there.

And who better to tell you all you need to know but William Shatner, AFTER THE JUMP...

The NYT:

“I think this is the Hubble Space Telescope of Mars exploration,” said John M. Grunsfeld, NASA’s associate administrator in charge of the science mission directorate. (He is best known as the Hubble repairman, flying on three space shuttle missions to refurbish and upgrade the telescope.) “This is the first time that we have a real analytical laboratory heading to the surface.”
