NASA Rover Makes It to Mars

It's a space mission that was two years in the making but finally came to fruition early on Monday morning when NASA's Curiosity rover successfully landed on the surface of Mars. The SUV-sized space rover will spend two years collecting samples that will help scientists learn if the planet ever had the environment to support the life organisms called microbes.
