Could Mars Rover Curiosity Come Home?

Curiosity-self As soon as NASA's newest six-wheeled rover touched down on the Martian surface, the world was hooked. Those JPL geniuses not only managed to land a robot the size of a small SUV on another planet, they captured the imagination of millions.


But with all this love and fondness for a rover called 'Curiosity' came the inevitable question: Will she come home?

My answer has always been: Of course not! How the heck could that huge robot be shipped back to Earth? It didn't land on Mars with an open return ticket and it certainly didn't bring its own return rocket booster!
