Curiosity, NASA’s most innovative Mars rover ever, has securely achieved the top area of the red planet following an eight month, 352-million-mile trip.
The Mini Cooper-sized, plutonium-powered spacecraft moved down at roughly 1:30 a.m. EDT. Packed with innovative resources, along with a laser light that can zap stones; the $2.6 billion rover will discover a tremendous mountain crater to figure out if Mars is or was able to support lifestyle, probably by means of microscopic organisms.
Over the next two decades, Curiosity will search for examples within Gale Crater. The one-ton, hi-tech automobile, which will be managed from the Jet Space Clinical in Florida, will also evaluate nutrients taken from stones or scooped from ground. The outcomes will expose how the red rock established — crucial to knowing of Mars’ atmosphere.
