PASADENA, CA - AUGUST 5: In this handout from NASA,NASA Administrator Charles Bolden congratulates NASA Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate John M. Grunsfeld, after the Mars Science laboratory (MSL) rover Curiosity successfully landed on Mars, inside the Spaceflight Operations Facility for NASA's Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover at Jet Propulsion Laboratory on August 5, 2012 in Pasadena, California. The MSL Rover named Curiosity is equipped with a nuclear-powered lab capable of vaporizing rocks and ingesting soil, measuring habitability, and whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbe.

PASADENA, CA - AUGUST 5: In this handout image provided by NASA, Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Pauline Hwang (L) and Nagin Cox pose for a photograph while holding packs given to each of the team members that contain a mars bar and peanuts in the Mission Support Area at JPL ahead of the planned landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars, August 5, 2012 in Pasadena, California. The MSL Rover named Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. Curiosity is due to land on Mars at 10:31 p.m. PDT today (1:31 a.m. EDT on Aug. 6, 2012). (Photo by Bill Ingalls/NASA via Getty Images)
