Have you ever looked up at the vast night sky and wondered, “Is there anyone else out there? Has there ever been life on worlds other than our own?” To begin answering such questions the Mars Science Lab (MSL) program has launched its latest creation, Curiosity. Curiosity is the latest in a line of Mars rovers, destined for a two year mission to Mars to answer the question, “Has there ever been life on Mars?” But between posing such a question, stating a hypothesis, and either disproving or confirming that hypothesis there are many things to consider. In this pathway we will explore several different aspects of this mission from the Planning stages, to Launch, to landing On the Surface of Mars.
