Curiosity Has Landed!
Congratulations to NASA/JPL and Mars Science Laboratory team for successfully landing Curiosity to Gale crater on Mars on August 6, 2012 at 13:31 pm (Manila Time Zone)!
Curiosity is a car-sized rover consisting of instruments that will analyze the geochemistry of Martian rocks. It is so far the biggest Mars rover ever built by NASA and the first to use a rocket powered sky crane for landing.
Because I’m really a fan of Mars exploration, I made this as my desktop wallpaper:
Cheers to Planetary Science and Exploration!
