Curiosity rover's gorgeous pictures from the surface of Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover has begun sending back its first high-resolution photographs of Mars, and they're pretty stunning.

New chemical science findings from NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity indicate that ancient Mars likely had a higher abundance of molecular oxygen in its atmosphere compared to the present day and was thus more hospitable to life forms, if they ever existed.

Ancient Mars Was Even More Earth-Like Than We Imagined

New findings from NASA’s Curiosity Rover provide evidence that significant amounts of oxygen once permeated the atmosphere of ancient Mars. The Red Planet, it would seem, was more Earth-like than we thought.

Sol 2087: Slippery slope – NASA’s Mars Exploration Program

Curiosity pulled away from the "Duluth" site yesterday, but given the blocky nature of the "Blunts Point" member and the sand in between those blocks, she did not get far.

NASA has revealed that a whiff of methane has been detected twice in the last couple of years at the Martian surface by the Curiosity Rover. The source of the methane is uncertain. It is not even clear… Sonda Curiosity, Nasa Rover, Nasa Curiosity Rover, Curiosity Mars, Recent Discoveries, Red Planet, Mars Planet, Aliens And Ufos, Life On Mars

Curiosity Rover Finds and Examines a Meteorite on Mars – NASA’s Mars Exploration Program

The dark, smooth-surfaced rock at the center of this Oct. 30, 2016, image from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover was examined with laser pulses and confirmed to be an iron-nickel meteorite. It is about the size of a golf ball.
