Life on Mars
Cricketers will have their eyes on other worlds as the latest scientific mission to Mars lifts off today. The delivery of Nasa's Mars Science Laboratory rover, known as Curiosity, to the surface of the Red Planet is hugely exciting. The $2.5bn vehicle is by far the most sophisticated machine ever to touch another world. Curiosity will provide a wide range of critically important scientific information. It should help doughty groundsmen answer that age old question, 'Is there cricket on Mars?'
