ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the successful landing of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Curiosity rover on Mars. The author believes that the project would give NASA a boost since it has been a prime target for budget cuts. According to Mars Society president Robert Zubrin, it is time to plan more missions and it would be insanity to abort the Mars program. Scientists mention the slashing of Mars program funding in the proposed budget for 2013.
