SPACE IS SO COOL.
SPACE IS SO COOL.
Happy anniversary, little guy!
Nasa’s Curiosity rover took the pictures.
Bee superpowers, living in a pretend spaceship and a mammal that has sex until it falls apart. 2013 was a rollercoaster ride of a year for science.
It does WHAT on Uranus?!
NASA nerds are the best nerds.
This is a full-resolution version of the NASA Curiosity rover descent to Mars, taken by the MARDI descent imager.
If you were riding on the Mars Science Laboratory Descent Vehicle, that flying saucer-like shell that hovered above Curiosity’s parachute, it might have felt something like this. The series of still images were compiled by SpaceFlight101 .
Is anyone else constantly surprised by how Earth-like everything looks? Of course, what else would it look like?
The first panoramic picture from Curiosity’s spot on Mars, an exciting new short film about the landing, Curiosity rebuilt in Legos by one of its real engineers, and Bobak the Mohawk guy hangs out at NPR… Science!
Not everyone was excited about Curiosity’s flawless landing. An easy way to shut down naysayers on your social media platforms.
Curiosity has sent back its first full-color image from Mars. So, what filter do you think it’s using? I’m guessing Amaro, but the frame is more like Hefe. (Sorry, NASA.)
It’s not very big, and it might not look like much, but this photo, taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite, captures the Curiosity as it’s parachuting to the surface. I’ve never seen anything like this before.
The happiest place on earth, at least for a few minutes last night, was the control room at the Jet Propulsion Lab.
The minute Curiosity landed this morning, NASA mission control went wild. It was touching.
You earned it, guys! Here are a bunch of NASA employees rightfully getting emotional about the Curiosity rover’s successful touchdown on Mars.
NASA’s $2.5 billion dollar project Mars rover, Curiosity, landed successfully on the red planet late last night. These are the first images it has sent back.
Go forth, young robot, and learn. Let’s break down the rover’s ambitious and costly trek to Mars in an attempt to find microbial life by the numbers.
