  The upcoming Mars Science Laboratory mission should make for great viewing, as well as great science. JPL just released this nice animation.

A camera mounted on the Curiosity rover will provide video of the descent.

Remember the Apollo lunar ascent videos? If only they could get a similar surface perspective of the rover landing, that would be a ballet worth seeing.

Instead of seeing photos from the most expensive resort ever constructed, Id much rather see slide shows of much more interesting locales.

It would be great. But it's not going to come from America any time soon. Not from a gov't more interested in war than space. Not in a debt economy that's run it's course. Maybe you can get Gates, Jobs, the Waltons, the Sultan, Soros, a Rothschild, the Facekid, and a couple of rich brutal dictators out of a job to fund a private mission...

Otherwise it'll likely be Europe/Russia/Japan/China/India doing the big stuff, which we'll be indirectly funding wink.gif
