Curiosity and its supporting hardware landed on the Martian surface, and have begun sending back pictures from Mars. Here's the latest ones released by NASA along with other pictures related to the mission.
This Aug. 26, 2003 image made available by NASA shows Mars photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope on the planet's closest approach to Earth in 60,000 years. Mars is set to get its latest visitor Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012, when NASA's new robotic rover, named Curiosity, attempts to land there. Mars has been a prime target for space exploration for decades, in part because its climate 3.5 billion years ago is believed to have been warm and wet, like early Earth. (AP Photo/NASA)
