Mars landing site narrowed down to two candidates AP

NASA is deciding between two places on Mars to send its next rover.
The space agency said that the project team and outside scientists have narrowed the options and that a final decision on the destination for the nuclear-powered rover nicknamed Curiosity will likely be made by the end of the month. The rover will touch down either in Gale Crater near the Martian equator or the Eberswalde crater in the planet’s southern hemisphere.
