On Monday night, the Mars Curiosity Rover will endure its seven minutes of terror and then (hopefully) commence its scientific mission. But what's involved in that mission? And where do we go afterward?
The best way to answer these questions quickly? In song.
The technology blog PandoDaily has commissioned this two-minute explanatory ditty from ExplainerMusic, the group that had its start in making sense of fracking for ProPublica. The song's even based on David Bowie's "Life on Mars."
So happy Friday, it's time for glam rock. For glam rock, that is, and science.
