Launch of Mars rover

Mike Killian, 27, captured these images from the launch of NASA's latest robotic expedition to Mars, on November 26, 2011. On board the Atlas V Rocket seen in these photos are NASA's Mars Science Laboratory and its rover Curiosity, which will explore the Red Planet and look for signs of life when they arrive, next August.
