    Background:

    Location: Mars. Their imaginations stirred by what might happen during the “7 minutes of terror” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki_Af_o9Q9s), more than 3.2 million people watched the nail-biting descent of the Curiosity Rover live onto the Red Planet. 1.2 million people regularly follow Curiosity’s adventures via Twitter (https://twitter.com/MarsCuriosity). And almost all of us wished that we were there. How can we connect people at home to what’s happening with the rover? (Other than great satiric accounts like https://twitter.com/SarcasticRover).

    Challenge Description:

    Bring awareness of the Curiosity Rover’s activities down to earth. Foster a connection between citizens and the rover through software, visualizations, or a remote or app-controlled "home rover" that connects people to Mars and the Mars Rover, educating them and encouraging Mars enthusiasm.

    Functional Specifications:

    There are multiple ways this challenge could be addressed. Here are a few examples:

    1. A site with a history of the rover’s mission and updates on its current activities. Encourage users of the site to submit written compositions and drawings for sharing.
    2. Map the motion and discoveries of the rover to the earth (Curiosity has just moved the equivalent of 5 blocks down main street, etc.).
    3. A Mars Rover Model (possibly a Lego Mindstorms mini model) that connects people mentally to Mars. This rover could replicate the movements of curiosity, show photos the rover has taken, and physically resemble the Mars rover.
