Video Of The Week - Why NASA's 'Curiosity' And Your Own, Matter



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!
