Will Curiosity transmit live data on the internet?

I wonder if Mars Curiosity mission will transmit real-time data to the Internet so the public can have access to it. It would really spark a lot of interest.

  1. That's doubtful. As understand it the maximum transmission rate is 32 Kbps. Compare that to 1 or 2 Mbps for your home computer.

    (Besides if you spent 7 years building a rover you'd be kind of pissed if the data was given out to the general public before you got to even look at it.)
