Test your Mars exploration knowledge

With NASA's "Curiosity" rover due to launch on November 26, Mars exploration is once again on the space agenda.

"Curiosity" - full name Mars Science Laboratory "Curiosity" - will search for signs that Mars is, or ever was, able to support microbial life.

But even as the Science Laboratory is being prepared for launch, more missions to the Red Planet are being planned and new technologies are being researched that will allow ever more information about Mars to be collected.

Take our quiz and find out how much you know about the future of Mars exploration.
