Separated at Birth? Mars Curiosity Rover

This week Nasa achieved an extraordinary accomplishment by not crashing a rover the size of a car into Mars.

The Curiosity Rover blasted off from Earth 9 months ago on it’s way to Mars to search for signs of life, not the green skinned kind with ray guns and flying saucers but the small ‘hidden in old rock’ bacteria variety.

Curiosity Rover uses the unique Skycrane method of reaching the surface of the red planet.. I wonder if it was inspired by another way of getting hardware onto the surface of another red planet from Star Wars!
