Yay, small businesses! Just goes to show that you can do anything. Not even the sky's the limit.
Landing the Curiosity rover on Mars was a big feat for NASA, but we could not have done it without the work of small businesses.

On Wednesday, Sept. 19, NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden is joining Administrator Karen Mills of the Small Business Administration for a Google+ Hangout with ATA Engineering, one of the small businesses that made the Mars Science Laboratory mission landing a success.

Google+ members and reporters are welcome to join the discussion from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT Wednesday. Administrators Bolden and Mills will talk with representatives of ATA about their work to design and analyze the design of the entry, descent and landing process – known as "Seven Minutes of Terror" – as well as other systems operating the Curiosity rover.

You can join in the conversation on Wednesday by submitting your questions in the event comments below and on Twitter using the hashtag #AskNASA.

Otherwise, come back to the +NASA page on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. EDT to watch the Google+ Hangout.
