  YOUR EXPERT OPINION IS INVITED

  What is the probability that spacecraft Curiosity, scheduled
to land on Mars Sunday night, will successfully land and radio
back to Earth that it is basically okay?

  With Curiosity, a series of tricky automated maneuvers
must go perfectly or it's "game over."  Most of us who work
with complex facilities know how easily something can go wrong.

  So, give us your 'probability of success' figure by e-mailing
the editor of this newsletter.  We won't publish your name, but
we will summarize the data received.  All "votes" must be in by
8 PM PDT this Sunday.  The landing attempt will occur later
that evening.

  To review the complexity of the landing task, check out
JPL's "Seven Minutes of Terror" video.  Keep in mind that many
of the sub-systems have been tested again and again, so that
is an important factor to be considered.
