So exciting!
Tonight starting at 11pm ET/8pm PT, join us for live NASA TV coverage of the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars. 

Watch at http://www.nasa.gov/ntv

The #MSL  Mars Science Laboratory is the most ambitious, complex mission in the history of robotic space exploration. On August 5/6, 2012, the mission will set down a large, mobile laboratory - the dune buggy-sized Curiosity rover - using a new form of precision landing technology that makes many of Mars' most intriguing regions viable destinations for the first time.

So after reading a post on DroidForums.net about modifying a usb car charger for my Galaxy Nexus I decided to give it a try. As you may know, any time you are charging from USB you only get about a .5 amp charge. Charging from a wall socket will give you a full 1 amp charge. According to this post the only difference between the two is that the 2 USB contacts (circled in red) in the middle are bonded together on a wall charger. I bent the pins over and gave it a touch of solder. Now for the test. Wish me luck.....

Update: SUCCESS!! Charging as AC instead of USB.

C5A Galaxy is HUGE! Hard to get a good idea of scale from this picture but apparently you can fit the entire cargo area of a C-130 in the unuseable tail space of the C5.
