Curiosity's Discovery Of Gas Levels On Mars Raises Hopes For Life
Much has been opined about the possibility of life on Mars. The rovers that have been sent up there so far have yet to send back data that conclusively determines that there was life on Mars at any point since the planet’s existence. However, a recent discovery of methane gas has hinted at the possibility of life on the Red Planet.

Mars Rover Curiosity Celebrates First Anniversary With A Selfie
Selfies are a hot trend these days. It looks like as if everyone who has a smartphone with a front-facing camera is in on this, everyone from your average joe and jane to celebrities and politicians. We now welcome something entirely different in the mix. Mars rover Curiosity has completed its first Martian year and as part of the celebrations NASA has released a “selfie” that the rover took of itself on […]

NASA's Curiosity Rover Discovers Mars' Soil Is 2% Water
NASA’s Curiosity rover has been having quite the time on Mars over the past year. Just last September, Curiosity found evidence of water on the red planet, and this summer, traces of “drinkable water” was found on Mars. Considering how important water is for life on Earth to survive, these were pretty big discoveries, but Curiosity’s recent discovery trumps them in comparison.

Curiosity Rover Beams Billion Pixel Panoramic Mars Shots
The Curiosity Rover on Mars has beamed back billion pixel shots of the Red Planet's landscape.


Curiosity Mars Rover Hit By Computer Glitch Again
The Curiosity Mars Rover that hails from NASA is extremely far away from home, and it will see out the rest of its remaining days on the Red Planet, but it seems that all is not fine and dandy with this remotely controlled robot. Perhaps it is home-sick (it is a joke, people!), but another computer glitch has hit Curiosity, which would prevent it from resuming its science experiments. According […]

Foursquare Offers Curiosity Explorer Badge To NASA Fans
When Curiosity made its famous Mars landing this past summer, it started its very important mission to study the mysterious red planet to discover a number of things, including if we could one day treat Mars as a second home.Today, NASA is announcing another important mission that includes you, your smartphone and Foursquare as you can add an exclusive Curiosity Explorer badge to your collection when you like NASA on […]

Curiosity is now Mayor of Mars after checking in Foursquare
While the billions of people here on earth try to carve up some space to live and being the “king/queen of his/her own castle”, the Mars rover from NASA known as Curiosity is living it out on the Red Planet that is thousands and thousands of miles away from us. As far as we know, it is the only man-made object surveying the landscape of Mars at the moment, taking […]

Curiosity's first Mars track marks
Just like a doting parent, the folks over at NASA are fawning over the Curiosity Rover’s every single movement on the Red Planet after landing there earlier this month. Sure, we have seen its first panoramic photo, in addition to a high definition video of its rather pinpoint and accurate landing, so what other “firsts” are there to explore with the Curiosity? Here we are with a 360-degree panorama shot […]

Curiosity Mars landing captured in HD video
Since we are all about High Definition at the movies and in our living rooms these days, why not check out a historical landing made by NASA’s Curiosity Rover which was recorded in High Definition? Compiled from the probe’s MARDI descent camera, what you see above has been touted to be the best quality landing video to date, where it allows you to have a glimpse at what it feels […]

NASA reveals mission to study Mars' core
Mars has been a large subject of interest in the science community for years now. Many hope that eventually we’ll send a space shuttle there and set up some sort of space station. NASA’s most recent project was Curiosity, which landed just two weeks ago. Curiosity is NASA’s largest Mars rover to date and its two year mission is to discover if the planet was ever able to support life, […]

Curiosity rover on Mars receives software update
Your smartphone is not the only device hanging around that receives a software update, you know – and neither is your favorite video game console either. How about a piece of machine that is located thousands and thousands of kilometers away from our earth – residing on the Red Planet, otherwise known as Mars, where it is called Curiosity by everyone else? Well, we are pleased to say that the […]

Curiosity sends back 360-degree panoramic photo of Mars
The Curiosity Rover’s landing on Mars was a successful one, and it is time to get down and dirty on the Red Planet. In fact, Curiosity has certainly lived up to its name by sending back another photo on Thursday – this time around, it outdoes the previous photo sent, as this is the first 360-degree color panorama snapshot of the Gale Crater in the world, or should I say, […]

NASA's Curiosity rover sends back first color photo
After the successful landing of NASA’s heaviest piece of machinery on the red planet to date, the Curiosity Rover has sent back its first few images of the dusty planet, and if you can just squint your eyes a little bit, you might be able to check out the natives of Barsoom, and some say, a speck that could very well be John Carter leaping through the air. What Curiosity […]

Lego Mindstorms masquerades as Mars Curiosity Rover
Earlier this morning, we talked about how NASA managed to successfully land their Curiosity Rover on the red planet, and here we are with someone who was inspired by the real deal, and with some Lego wizardry, managed to come up with a Lego Mindstorms version of the Mars Curiosity Rover. Doug Moran and Will Gorman are the ones behind this particular Lego Mindstorms model, where it is part of […]
