Curiosity will be a 7 minute stress-fest

The way they engineered the next Mars rover to land on Mars. It's insane, but cool. I hope it works.

August 6 is the scheduled date. Curiosity is designed to cruise Mars for at least 687 of our days. I wonder if like the unexpected longevity of the earlier rovers, that means it'll probably run 50 years on the planet.
