Curiosity is expected to land is August 2012 and is sent on a 2 year mission to investigate microbial life on Mars and is sent on a 2 year mission.

The results of this rover should be very interesting to see. It still is extremely fascinating to me that we even have the technology to send a spacecraft to another planet on a voyage of 2 years, and still have it return back to Earth in one piece. Especially, because there are no humans physically manning the spacecraft.
