What is a rover

the mars curiosity doer is like a toy remote controll car that is 10 feet tall and to is on mars. many people know about it and watched it land in 2006 .

How did it land

Before they had launched a rover to mars they had to make sure in would stay on mars so they launched a microwave oven up there to test it. After it worked they built the rover and put it on a shuttle to mars. When it got there they started to lower it with a claw but the string was to short so they dropped it and the main thrusters came on like rockets so it could get closer. After it was almost out of flue it dropped it one last time but the thrusters De attached it deployed a parachute and safely made it to the surface.
