Mars Rover Has Landed After 'Seven Minutes of Terror'

NASA's Curiosity Rover has successfully landed on the surface of Mars in a daring maneuver that involved a rocket-powered sky crane lowering the rover to the surface. The Curiosity Rover is expected to spend the next two years exploring the Gale crater on Mars and searching for evidence that the region is now, or was once, habitable for primitive microbial life.
