The most high-tech rover ever built makes a perfect landing on Mars. After an eight-month and 352 million-mile journey, the Curiosity rover blazed through the pink skies of Mars and gently landed right on target.
Curiosity beamed back the first black and white photos from inside the crater. The photos show its wheel and its shadow cast by the afternoon sun.
Over the next two years, Curiosity will drive to a mountain rising from the crater floor to poke into rocks and scoop up soil. It’s all part of the quest to find out whether there was ever life on the red planet.
What do you think the rover will find? Post your thoughts below!
