NASA Mars rover lifts off.
07:28
On November 26, 2011 at 15:02 UTC the US "Curiosity” Mars rover was launched from complex 41 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station by United Launch Alliance.
The NASA's $2.5 billion Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover was orbited by the "Atlas-5” rocket-carrier and began an eight-and-a-half-month 352-million-mile voyage to the red plane. Engineers received data from the MSL showing that all systems are operating normally.

The rover is to spend two Earth years on the surface of Mars searching for evidence of the elements of life and factors such as surface radiation that can limit life.
