Mars Pics


Curiosity rover, NASA’s most recent robotic, nuclear-powered Mars rover, successfully landed on Mars on 6 August 2012.  It is a car-sized mobile scientific laboratory and it landed in Gale Crater, less than 2.4km from its target after a journey of 563,270,400 km.  Mars rover was launched on 26 November 2011.
