This pyramid-shaped rock on Mars will soon find a place in space history as it has been chosen to be the first test of the Curiosity Rover's advanced geology analyzing equipment. NASA hopes to use multiple instruments to examine the rock and then compare the different inputs to ensure that the tests are consistent. The space agency has named the rock 'Jake' in honor of the late JPL engineer Jake Matijevic, who passed away in August. More on the story at NBC News.
