"Get out your rock-vaporizing laser! You've explored your scientific curiosities just like NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars. Stay curious and keep exploring. You never know what you'll find," is the custom message users will see once they have earned the badge.

 

The partnership comes after Curiosity becomes the first person (robot?) to check in on another planet of Foursquare. You can read the full press release at NASA's website.
