NASA has unveiled its newest Mars Rover. The Curiosity is slated for launch this November. After a ten-month trip, it will search for signs of life and perform other experiments–ideally for two years. According to a CNN story, the name “Curiosity” came from a student in Kansas, Clara Ma, who won a trip to JPL and the opportunity to sign the bottom of the rover.
