+ - Could Curiosity Save Our Wildest Martian Dreams? ->

pigrabbitbear writes "After recent budget cuts to NASA’s Mars program, the agency’s dream of a sample return mission within the next decade is dead in the water. But the $2.5 billion dollar rover Curiosity is on its way to the red planet right now, and speculation is popping up online that the it could fairly easily be retrofitted with the hardware needed to collect and store samples. Theoretically NASA would just need one more mission to collect and return those samples, turning Curiosity into the first phase of the sample return dream."
