Nice Find! It looks like this will be a lander mission. Interesting video of the launch.

this is interesting because it relates to our current topic in class and is a modern day mission that we can talk about.

Very interesting. Hopefully with the launch of this new laboratory we will be able to learn more about Mars and the possibility that the Red planet contains life, in the present or in the past. Also, interesting that this article talks about how the rover will land, which I understand is a very difficult and complicated procedure.
