Space may be the final frontier, but it seems that it is
mostly going to be explored by robots, at least for the time being. Some of you
may be aware of the Curiosity rover. Curiosity is currently on the surface of
the planet Mars, but what you may not know is that the rover is coming up on a
very big anniversary.
The rover is soon to have been out there for a full year. That
sounds like it is not a big deal, but in certain communities however it has
been a big reason for interest. The Curiosity rover is getting big attention
from many people who are outside of the scientific community.
As an odd twist the rovers team is also getting some attention.
Members of the staff of the control room have gotten social attention, and even
a few marriage proposals along the way. So as it turns out you don’t actually
have to get into space to get the cool factor.
