Curiosity Mars Mission

On 6 August 2012, NASA's Mars rover Curiosity successfully landed on the surface of the Red Planet! Weighing in at 900 kg, Curiosity is the largest rover ever sent to Mars.

NASA gave the general public the opportunity from 2009 until 2011 to submit their names to be sent to Mars. More than 1.2 million people from the international community participated, and their names were etched into silicon using an electron-beam machine, and this microchip is installed and riding on the deck of Curiosity.

I'm extremely proud that my name is on Mars.

More information about Curiosity's mission can be found here and here.
