Tonight or tomorrow, depending on where you live, the Mars Rover Curiosity lands on the Martian surface.

So in the midst of the Olympics, take a moment to cheer, pray or simply hope for the success of a one ton robot as it rockets to the landscape of the red planet. Be it we discover life, water, oil, the simple thrill of learning, or a stepping stone to the greater space beyond, here's hoping to the success of one small robot hurtling through the vastness of space.

And may it's eight month journey, be only the beginning.
