The Mars Science Laboratory Rover, Curiosity. Landing on Mars August 2012 to investigate its habitability.
About this creation

This is a model of the Mars Science Laboratory rover, named Curiosity. It is currently on its way to investigate the past and current habitability of Mars. This model has a fully articulated arm, deployable mast, and a working rocker-bogie suspension system that allows the rover to climb over large rocks and keep all six of its wheels on the ground. It is an excellten educational outreach tool and is incredibly fun to play with.

The Curiosity Rover has also been submitted to LEGO CUUSOO. Feel free to support it if you would like to see it become an official LEGO set.



A Lego Digital Designer is also available below so anyone can make their own rover and learn about this exciting mission!

Stephen, Congrats on your well-deserved new LEGO(R) set. My on-going fascination with the MSL mission and your excellent MOC inspired an attempt at a 1:12 motorized MSL with a working 6x6x0 rocker-bogie mobility system (now on MOCpages). The scaled-down rocker-bogie suspension performs quite well. Wish I could have found a way to steer the corner wheels at this scale but doubt that it's possible.

The link to Rebrickable, http://rebrickable.com/mocs/StephenPakbaz/mars-science-laboratory-curiosity-rover, on my CUUSOO page will have all the information you need to build the rover, including high quality step-by-step .pdf instructions you can download. Rebrickable can also tell you what a piece is, which sets it came in, and where you can buy the individual pieces, like at http://www.bricklink.com/, if that's what you want to do.

Very good job replicating the Mars Science Laboratory. Love the different techniques you used. I downloaded the Lego Digital Designer to see how it was built but some of the pieces i've never seen before. And i couldnt find them on Lego Pick a Brick. Just wondering where you ordered the pieces from? Anyways, Excellent model! Trust me, if i could vote 10,000 times for this model..I would :D

Wow! Nice modell, considering this small scale! Your method for the suspension is great, but it was hard to figure out how it works. I support it! :)
