+ - Mars Rover Curiosity Sealed-Up For Launch->

astroengine writes "On Oct. 5, less than two months before it is launched, Mars Science Laboratory "Curiosity" was sealed between its heat shield and back shell at Kennedy Space Center's Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility. The next time the one-ton rover sees daylight will be on Aug. 6, 2012 as the heat shield separates after successful entry through the Martian atmosphere, shortly before Curiosity touches down inside Gale Crater."
