NASA's Curiosity Rover Just Took A Step Towards Autonomy 

NASA just announced that it’s given the Curiosity rover the power to fire its laser at targets of its choice. You fools, you’ve killed us all.

This Is NASA's New Mars Rover

NASA is racing to finish a new Mars rover, and the mission just got a launch and land date. The new rover will leave Earth by August 2020, and in February of 2021, it will hit the surface of the Red Planet to search for signs of life.

We Now Know What Caused The Curiosity Rover To Glitch Out 

Curiosity is finally back in action, after it threw itself into a mysterious partial shutdown last week, briefly falling out of communication with Earth. Now, NASA has figured out the cause — and the culprit is also one of Curiosity’s best features.

NASA's Opportunity Rover Got Stuck On A Hill On Mars

NASA’s Opportunity rover just attempted to take on the steepest hill a Martian rover has ever climbed — and promptly got stuck there. Oh dear.

Curiosity's Next Mission Will Focus On Life On Mars

The Curiosity rover was sent up to Mars with the important job of hunting for microbes on the red planet’s surface. Now, that job is done, and Curiosity is getting a new mission — and that mission is all about the past, and future, of life on Mars.

This Is What The European Space Agency's ExoMars 2018 Test Rover Looks Like

A Fan Stitched Together The Best Selfie Of Curiosity Yet  

Behold Kevin Gill’s mosaic image of NASA’s Mars rover, which is just as good as the official selfies of Curiosity. The Nashua, NH, software engineer stitched together dozens of high-resolution photos taken by the MAHLI (Mars Hand Lens Imager) camera of the rover, and the result is a stunning self portrait of the car-sized robotic explorer.

The First Alien Sounds Of Mars Are So Damn Spooky

Video: This is a great video that shows the entire trip of the Mars Opportunity Rover on one side while tracking the trip on the red planet on the other. It’s cool to know where Opportunity has gone and what it has seen, but perhaps the craziest thing of the video is hearing the noise of the planet. It’s just so damn freaky.
