Stunning photo not from Mars.
 
I understand what you said, just not why you think so?
 
Because there is nothing on Mars to take a picture of the rover unless it was near another rover and I don't think they want to explore the same ground twice.

+Nerethel Solindas The only photos from Curiosity so far have been black and white, and this is not one of them.
 
Oh boy... Trolls. I wish I would have sniffed the air first.

sigh No, just pointing it out case someone saw "Curiosity is on Mars!" and thought the photo was real, because that's how it's being presented in my opinion.
 
i like NASA, they give the humanity things we could not get it
 
I got chills all over again watching that intro video.
 
How can I get a model of Curiosity like the one on the briefing?
 
If you wait a couple months I am sure they will be marketing miniature Curiositys for you to purchase.
 
Why there ain't no cool moon rover pictures? Except those from Hollywood.
 
the "head" dud just remind me of "number 5"
Sri Ram
 
its remind me of M-O (in wall-e)
 
You guys are right, thats not a photo from Mars. That is a screen cap from Wall-e.
 
'Curiosity'? no .... big Wall-e !! :D
Next time, NASA's guys ask people to give name to rover ! We are more inspired! ;-)
 
Its so bloody aweome. When does NASA actually predict us to live on Mars??
 
Jhon carter in mars............
 
NASA's funding is being cut and reduced to nothing. I am not sure they have a date anymore with funds shriveling up. I think the last date as far as years go was either sometime in 2020s or 2030s. So, it's several years in the future, provided NASA is still around to get us there. The private sector is growing by leaps and bounds, so maybe one of them might get us there quicker or at least supply some equipment to make it possible.
 
Jeez, Curiosity looks like the old No. 5

By the way, they do hold contests to name their satellites and rovers. That is how Spirit and Opportunity were named as well as the shuttle Endeavour and the new telescope, I think it is called Fermi.
 
Andrés: that will come expensive :)
 
Flat tire? Call Triple-A
 
Very good mix between the 3D motion scenes and the reactions of the launch crew ! Nice video.
 
I hope that Curiosity has loudspeakers and a digital recording of Slim Whitman singing "Indian Love Call" ... just in case.

Is Curiosity the love-child of Wall-E and Johnny 5?
