Return to Mars

I was told there would be cake.
Wake up dorks! Shake off that leftovers hangover and get your butts in front of a screen because this morning, we're going back to Mars!

If all goes according to plan, this morning at 10:02AM EST NASA's Mars Science Laboratory will launch the newest Mars rover, Curiosity (isn't it cute?), on top of an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral on a flight that will hopefully end in August 2012 with Curiosity safely on the Martian surface.

I've got a nuclear battery,
wanna fight about it?

Here's a live feed of the launch coverage. MSL also has a pretty great launch blog and website with a good overview of the mission. Space!
