Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Curiosity rover lifted off on Nov. 26 from Space Launch Complex 41 at

nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.



The Curiosity rover boasts 10 science instruments with which to search for evidence that Mars had

environments and chemical ingredients favorable for microbial life, as well as a laser to look

inside rocks and release their gasses so its spectrometer can analyze and send the data back to

Earth.



The QCW Quantel diodes used are qualified for aerospace by NASA, CNES and ESA. A year of tests was

needed to guarantee the reliability of those diodes.
