Every good engineering project has some failures along the way. I'm sure there were plenty that we never heard about on the Curiosity rover. I'm sure the engineers will be learning from this, and the new lander will be successful.

It looks sliver in the picture. Did all the green parts burn away?

The Curiosity rover uses good ol' NUCLEAR power and will last for 14 years!
