Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) (201208050004HQ)

An empty jar marked "Days Until Entry" and a jar full of marbles marked "Days Since Launch" are seen on a conference room table during a meeting of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012 in Pasadena, Calif. The MSL team has been moving one marble a day since launch from jar to jar. The MSL Rover named Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. Curiosity is due to land on Mars at 10:31 p.m. PDT on Aug. 5, 2012 (1:31 a.m. EDT on Aug. 6, 2012). Photo Credit: (NASA/Bill Ingalls)
