GEMINI ON MARS

We’re delighted to report that we are producing a one-hour show on the Mars Science Laboratory mission for the PBS science series NOVA.  NASA’s spectacular new Mars rover, Curiosity, is currently en route for the red planet and scheduled to land on the night of August 5, 2012.  We’ve had the amazing thrill to spend time with some of the engineers and scientists responsible for getting this missi0n off the ground and on to Mars. 

That’s us standing beside Curiosity’s identical twin sister, who stays here on earth to help the mission team test scenarios and problem-solve.  Curiosity weighs about as much as a VW Beetle — but she’s vastly smarter, programmed to accomplish all sorts of complicated operations on her own.  She may write a whole new chapter in the saga of Mars exploration.
