Curiosity is the name of the rover that is currently ‘working’ on the surface of Mars. It was launched on November 26, 2011 and made touchdown on Mars on August 6, 2012 – some 8 ½ months later. Thus, Curiosity has been in action for a little over 2 earth years, a little over one Mars year. A major part of Curiosity’s mission was to help determine “whether Mars could have ever supported life”. Curiosity continues to send pictures as well as information from the rock and soil samples it is equipped to take. Curiosity moves slowly and decisions about where to go, where to dig, where to explore are made deliberately. Plans for the rover are continuously monitored, changed and revised depending on the conditions observed and the capability of the rover. Thus, Curiosity has only traversed about 12 miles in 2+ years.
