How Long will the Curiosity Mission Last?

Question

Assuming the landing goes according to plan, how long will the mission last?

Answer

David - Well it's supposed to last for 687 Mars days to 1 Mars year, throughout all the seasons. Because it's a nuclear powered rover though, if we're still going after that time, we'll just keep right on trucking, and hopefully will last a good long time.
