NASA's biggest rover yet, Curiosity, is hours away from boldly going where no semi-autonomous vehicle has gone before.

El Reg's Iain Thomson is shoulder-surfing real, live, space boffins at NASA's Pasadena facility to get as close to the action as was possible after our bid to travel aboard the craft was rejected on the grounds of something called "mass budgets". Iain will publish just as much as is humanly possible as soon as is humanly possible from his vantage point.

Until then, here's NASA's live feed of all things Curiosity.

It's dull at the time of writing, but we're told it should spark up a bit closer to the landing.®
