(Newser) – NASA's Mars rover Curiosity is scheduled to touch down tomorrow night on a two-year mission, and who better than Captain Kirk to explain all? The space agency has William Shatner detail what it expects to happen, including the Hollywood-esque "seven minutes of terror" that precedes the landing, reports SkyNews. If Kirk doesn't cut it for you, another Trekkie, actor Wil Wheaton, also made a video.
