We’ll be giving these neat Curiosity replicas away to a few lucky #MarsTrivia winners. You can follow the games and play along on Twitter at @HuffPostScience.

In honor of the recent Mars Curiosity Rover landing, Mat

tel’s Hot Wheels brand has created a 1:64 scale miniature of the Rover. The die-cast replica, which was created to spark imagination as well as bring further awareness to NASA’s project, will hit stores in September, and be available for $1.09 (average price).
