NASA's Curiosity nearing launch

The Rover, Curiosity, is now recieiving it's finishing touches as it is prepared for launch in November. The Mars Rover was going to include a 3D camera the was built with the Assistance from "Avatar" Director James Cameron. Unfortunately, due to time restrictions, the camera had to be removed to fit the Rover's timescale. Hopefully we may find some evidence that Mars was indeed habitable during some period on it's existance.

  2. James Cameron must be pissed. He's losing the footage from the Pandoran desert.

  14. I really wish they didn't have such a tight dead line and drop the 3d camera. I would have loved some legitimate 3d shots of the surface. I wish they'd actually land some type of drilling bot soon though. I'm sure below the surface is where all the real interesting things are at.
