Mars rover Curiosity at Gale Crater

Dr Susanne P. Schwenzer,
From The Open University

The Mars Science Laboratory Mission rover Curiosity landed in Gale Crater, Mars, on 6 August 2012. Since then it has checked out all its instruments and begun to explore its landing site. Starting with the Glenelg area and sediments, the rover will proceed to the central mound of the crater to investigate the geology, hydrous history and the potential for habitable conditions of Gale Crater.
