Curiosity is on the move again one month after NASA switched to a backup computer

The Mars Curiosity Rover was originally launched on November 26, 2011 from Cape Canaveral, an American Air Force Station in Florida.

After a 560 million-kilometer journey, the $ 1.8 billion research vehicle landed just 2.4 kilometers from its intended landing site.

After a successful landing on 6 August 2012, the Rover has covered about 18 kilometers.

It was launched at the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) and the Rover accounted for 23 percent of the total of the entire mission.

With 80 kg of scientific instruments on board, the Rover weighs a total of 899 kg and is powered by a plutonium fuel source.

The rover is 2.9 meters long, 2.7 meters wide and 2.2 meters high.

The Mars Curiosity Server was originally intended to be a two-year mission to gather information to answer whether the planet could support life, has liquid water, studied the climate and geology of Mars and has been active for more than 2,000 days

The rover was originally supposed to be a two-year mission to gather information to answer whether the planet could sustain life, have liquid water, study the climate and geology of Mars.

Due to its success, the mission has been extended indefinitely and has been active for over 2,000 days.

The Rover has several scientific instruments on board, including the Mastcam, which consists of two cameras and can record high-resolution images and videos in real time.

On the journey of a car-powered robot, he has so far come across an ancient creek bed in which used to flow liquid water. Shortly after discovering that billions of years ago, a nearby area known as Yellowknife Bay was part of a lake that could have supported microbial life.
