This bad news is countered with continuing good news that the MSL mission (Curiosity) is on it's way to Mars and all seems to be well. So much so that a planned course adjustment a few days ago was not needed as the course was "excellent".
MSL should land on Mars sometime in August 2012. I have a countdown to it right here. The landing date isn't exact but, I'll try and keep the countdown as accurate as possible as updates to the expected landing date are received.
