Cruise phase trajectory of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) based on data from JPL HORIZONS and rendered with Celestia. The MSL carries a new generation Mars rover called 'Curiosity' whose primary mission is to determine if Mars has ever been a life-supporting environment.
The MSL has been launched on November 26, 2011 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (USA) by a Atlas V 541 launch vehicle and will land on Mars at Gale crater on August 06, 2012 at the earliest.
