NASA’s Curiosity is a rover that will land on Mars Gale Crater some time in August 2012. At almost one tonne in weight it is the largest object NASA has sent to land on another planet. It is 5 times larger than the previous rovers. While Curiosity will not look for life itself, it will look for whether life could or was sustainable on Mars.
