THE BRONX - NASA made a historic landing on Mars early Monday morning, and many Bronx kids say they can't wait to see what's there.

The science rover Curiosity burst through the red planet's atmosphere and landed in a crater, sending black and white images of the surface back to Earth moments later.

Several young Bronx residents said they are curious to see the color of the planet and if Curiosity can find other life forms.

NASA says it expects more images, including video and color pictures, in the coming days.
