On August 5th, at ~10:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time, the Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity will arrive on the surface of Mars. This talk will provide a short update on the mission and the landing site on the eve of landing. The focus will be on the payload and the capabilities of the MSL instrument suite; the science tools available to the mission will be considered in the context of how this complex mission will be brought on line during the initial sols after landing. A short video of the sample processing system will be part of the presentation.
