Launch day for MSL, Curiosity
Who else is watching?

Countdown: 29 Minutes

NASA's Mars Science Laboratory, with its Curiosity rover, awaits launch atop an Atlas V rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Launch Time: 10:02 a.m. EST.

70 percent chance of favorable conditions within the launch window.

If all goes well Curiosity will land on Mars Aug. 2012. The rover Curiosity will help assess whether Mars is, or ever was an environment able to support microbial life.
