Curiosity Lands Safely on Mars

Mars 5 August, 2012- At 2233 HRS PST the NASA rover Curiosity landed safely on Mars. At 50 million miles it was about 200 meters off target. About 30 minutes to touch down, controllers at the Pasadena Jet Propulsion Laboratory disconnected control of Curiosity. Becoming the ultimate in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Curiosity then flew herself to a perfect landing.
