NASA's rover Curiosity registered one year of adventures off Earth on Monday, November 26.Being sent from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida last year on November 26, Curiosity had a fairly curious eighth-month trip through space after which it landed on Martian surface on August 5 in a complicated manner.
There are over 23,000 valuable images already captured by Curiosity and sent to Earth, Space reports.
Curiosity is meant to have a two-year stay on Mars, time when he'll struggle to find any relevant signs for an eventual possibility of a microbial life on the Red Planet.
Interesting discoveries have already been made, like the exciting “something” that SAM has found over a week ago and about which NASA officials said it might reveal facts “for the history books.”
On his birthday, Curiosity has been, as always, heroically on duty.
