Red Rover, Come Over!

The new pictures from the Mars rover Curiosity are surely fantastic.  When you look at them, you feel like you want to go for a walk on a nice sunny day on dear old Mars.

Unfortunately, the atmospheric pressure on Mars is 0.1% that of Earth’s, and there is almost no magnetic field on Mars.  So not a very safe place for a biological unit to hang out on.
