We're going to Mars!

The Americans are sending a 1 ton vehicle to Mars shortly. Apparently it takes 7 months to get there. It will be able to detect life if found. They want to land it into a crater that perhaps used to hold water, I think. It will collect samples, and store them so that in future missions, they can return these samples to earth for more analysis.

I'm looking forward to Elon Musk sending someone to terraform Mars. It is only supposed to be a few years away. Exciting times!
