Landing a billion dollar rover, on the surface of Mars is an incredibly complex challenge for NASA. Joel Krajewski, chief engineer, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory explains.

Horizon has been behind the scenes with NASA’s team as they follow their rover across 350 million miles of space on an audacious mission to Mars.
Curiosity is the Mars rover, part of the billion dollar mission to explore the red planet to discover if life might have ever been possible.
