NASA Intern Danielle Roosa (back to camera) lands the Mars Rover Curiosity on a simulated video game during a press conference, Monday, July 16, 2012, at NASA Headquarters in Washington. In collaboration with Microsoft Corp., a new outreach game was unveiled Monday to give the public a sense of the challenge and adventure of landing in a precise location on the surface. Called "Mars Rover Landing," the game is an immersive experience for the Xbox 360 home entertainment console that allows users to take control of their own spacecraft and face the extreme challenges of landing a rover on Mars. Curiosity is scheduled to land at approximately 1:31 a.m. EDT Aug. 6 (10:31 p.m. PDT Aug. 5). Photo Credit: (NASA/Paul E. Alers)
