On Sunday, August 5th, 2012, NASA scientists successfully landed the massive 2,000 pound Mars Science Laboratory AKA Curiosity on the surface of the Red Planet, a feat that was truly considered one of the most momentous events in the history of Space.

However, if you are like most of us, you probably applauded it for a day and maybe even wondered if given the global recession, whether a $2.5 billion USD rover to a planet that we may never visit, was really money well spent. In this video, former Rock' n' Roll artist turned NASA engineer Adam Stelzner explains why Curiosity - Both NASA's and the human kind matter, irrespective of cost!
