Now my kids think Steve Squyres is a totally awesome science dude, too. A great look at one of the best scientific minds of our times.
And a tribute to one of the great successes of modern project management theories and practices.

Are you following Curiousity's visit to Mars? Why not get some background by learning about Curiosity's predecessors-- Spirit and Opportunity. Excellent photos and a gripping story of behind-the-scenes action!
