NASA’s Curiosity Has Been On Mars For More Than 7 Years And Here Are Its 30 Best Photos

For us, mere mortals, Mars is not a man’s land, where survival seems like a distant dream. After all, no human has ever walked on its surface and plans to send someone to the red planet are only in the early stages of its development. however, human beings have touched Mars through the durable wheels of Mars. We have 4 successful robot-operated Mars rovers (all managed by Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA): Sojourner, Opportunity, Spirit, and Interest.

When NASA lost all contact with the vehicle on February 13, 2019, the mission of the occasion was announced as complete, Curiosity survived alone on the red planet and rolled to its surface to explore the unknown land automatically. The spacecraft first landed on Mars on August 6, 2012, and began to fulfill its objectives for several years. In fact, Curiosity has done its job well, extending its length of work to 687 days indefinitely.

Here’s how Curiosity was 7 years ago and now curiosity is approaching its 8th anniversary on Mars, which is currently the only operational rover on the planet (we all had to say goodbye to the OP, unfortunately), and NASA plans to send something to Mars in the form of around. The 2020 mission is scheduled for July 17 to August 5, when the rocket carrying the Rover will be launched. NASA announced the student naming competition for the Rover in the fall of 2019. The final name will be announced in early March 2020, so we definitely have something to look forward to!
