    In anticipation of a successful landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars, a jar of "lucky peanuts" stands at the ready at the Flight Director's station at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It is a JPL tradition for the flight director to hand out peanuts to mission control personnel after a successful extraterrestrial landing. Los Alamos National Laboratory has roles in three key technologies aboard the rover—a six-wheeled mobile science laboratory looking for signs of habitability on the Red Planet.
