Rover’s First “Steps” Make “Parents” Proud on This Week @ NASA


The Mars Science Laboratory, also known as Curiosity, rolled across a clean room floor at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, essentially taking its first “steps” before proud mission team members. The largest rover ever made for Mars is scheduled to launch to the Red Planet in the fall of 2011. Also, two Russian cosmonauts made a successful spacewalk outside the International Space Station; wind tunnel testing is making human spaceflight safer; the first map to cover the entire surface of Mars makes its debut online, and more.
