pretty cool ... gn=organic

i looked it up because i was 'curious' too...wondered how long it took to get to mars....

253 days
The spacecraft flew 352 million miles (407.1 million kilometers) in 253 days to reach Mars. Like most NASA landers, Curiosity didn't orbit before landing on August 6, 2012. It went straight into the Martian atmosphere on a high-speed, targeted landing, at over 13,000 MPH (5811 meters/sec).
