For those who care (and if you don't please move along the corpse isn't twitching any more).
Curiosity dreams on Mars for a sol day.
Curiosity also had it's seven minutes of terror
(of which things turned out less scary in the end).
It should be noted that it was launched using a Atlas V vehicle (commercial).
If anyone has more fun links about curiosity put them on this (I guess NASAs APOD counts as well).
