GetCurious.com was built to raise awareness of Mars exploration prior to, during and after the landing of rover Curiosity on the surface of Mars, with a primary goal of fostering support for future manned missions to Mars.

The site is a go-to resource for all things Curiosity, brought to you by Explore Mars, United Launch Alliance (ULA)National GeographicAeroJet and Phillips & Company. On GetCurious.com visitors can find regularly updated information on the Curiosity mission along with videos, and educational content. In addition, viewers can learn about the Mars Cities campaign and upload photos of themselves at the giant “Mars Rocks.”

The creators of GetCurious.com also worked with Yuri’s Night to track and promote all of the landing parties planned for the night of August 5 to celebrate the touchdown of Curiosity on Mars. Let the world know about the party you have planned. Share updates from your party on Twitter using hash tag #MarsParties.

The Curiosity mission is the fourth time we’ve traveled to Mars with the goal of having a rover trek over the Martian surface, and the knowledge we can gain from the rover’s exploration is extraordinary. We have an opportunity to learn if life once existed or could exist on Mars, which puts us one step closer to human exploration of Mars by 2030.

Are you curious yet? Curiosity will be on Mars for 23 months so stay curious: We have a lot to learn from this ambitious and exciting mission.
