+ - How do yo land a nuke-powered Mini-Cooper on Mars?

Submitted by tcd004

The Mini Cooper-sized Mars Science Laboratory, which is now named Curiosity, will crawl the Martian surface under steam from a nuclear powerplant—but it's a gentile giant compared to it's predecessors. Recent theories have emerged that previous attempts at identifying organic compounds in Martian soil may have actually cooked away any signs of life-giving elements. Curiosity will go to great pains to avoid scorching the Earth...erm...Mars."
