William Shatner Vs. Will Wheaton: Narrating The Curiosity Rover Landing

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 31st, 2012

If you’re, well, a bit curious how NASA is going to pull off landing the largest space rover ever constructed safely on the surface of Mars, William Shatner and Wil Wheaton face off to bring you the facts.

On August 6th, Curiosity will land on Mars–in the above video William Shatner highlights how the rover will be safely deployed and what it will after its deployment. In the video below, Wil Wheaton does the same in a sort of sci-fi actors as campy science video narrator duel.

We don’t know about you, but after watching both videos our vote for the most dramatic use of the word Curiosity goes to Shatner.
