Curiosity’s Mars Landing. After travelling in space for more than eight months since its launch in November 2011, the Mars Science Laboratory will finally land its rover on the red planet in Aug, to begin two years of unprecedented scientific work and search for any evidence of life. Graphic is a diagram of Rover Curiosity and some of its fascinating technology. #Scientific #Space #Exploration

Martian Mesas in 'Murray Buttes' Area, Sol 1434 The two prominent mesas in this view of Mars' 'Murray Buttes' region from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover are about 260 feet (about 80 meters) apart. Upper Mount Sharp is the salmon-hued mound dominating the horizon between the scene's two prominent mesas.

Mars has rocks on its surface unlike any we have ever seen before on Earth!!! Mars has this rock for instance, which is assumed to be made from Martian Volcanoes (due to the pitting from gas escaping to the rock surfaces)
