NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover Report #18 — December 21, 2012


A NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover team member gives an update on developments and status of the planetary exploration mission. The Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft delivered Curiosity to its target area on Mars at 1:31:45 a.m. EDT on Aug. 6, which includes the 13.8 minutes needed for confirmation of the touchdown to be radioed to Earth at the speed of light. The rover will conduct a nearly two-year prime mission to investigate whether the Gale Crater region of Mars ever offered conditions favorable for microbial life.

  1. nasa there might be a way that I thought up to make space travel shorter and cheaper without compromising time on the actual planet, there might be a way to develop a wormhole generating machine that could control a wormhole so that you could cut flight time to almost nothing but the landing on the planet and getting off
