Curiosity Explores Ancient Riverbed

We wanted to give an update on the progress of the Martian rover Curiosity. The rover has moved into the Gale crater to explore what NASA believes is an ancient riverbed. Curiosity has uncovered a rock, nicknamed Hottah, “looked like someone came to the surface of Mars with a jackhammer,” said John Grotzinger of Caltech, project scientist for the mission, during a NASA press conference today,  “adding that it wouldn’t look out of place as a slab of concrete in downtown L.A.” – Wired
