Not many people can accurately claim to have driving experience on multiple planets, but Keri Bean can! In addition to navigating traffic in Southern California, she also has the distinction of driving rovers on Mars. Blair Allen talks to Keri Bean about what it takes to drive Curiosity and how she will support Perseverance when it lands on Mars in February. Check it out! Producer: Blair Allen

NASA’s Curiosity Finds Climate Clues on a Martian Mountain
After spending the better part of a year exploring Mars’ Vera Rubin Ridge, NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has moved to a new part of Mount Sharp. Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada gives a tour of the rover's new home in the “clay unit,” as well as other areas scientists are excited to visit. Find out what they could tell us about watery ancient Mars versus the dry Red Planet we see today.

NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover Departs Vera Rubin Ridge (360 View)
NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover has already descended from Vera Rubin Ridge, a region of Mount Sharp that it has been exploring for more than a year. But before it left, the rover took a 360-degree panorama of the area depicting its last drill hole on the ridge (at a location called "Rock Hall"), a new region it will spent the next year exploring (the clay unit) and its last view of Gale Crater's floor until it starts ascending in elevation again.

OTD in Space - Nov. 26: Curiosity Rover Launches to Mars
On November 26, 2011, the NASA Curiosity rover launched to Mars. Curiosity was the biggest and most powerful rover anyone had ever sent to the Red Planet. The two-ton science laboratory is about the size of a small SUV. The mission's goal was to search for habitable environments on Mars, or evidence that the planet could have been habitable in the past. It launched on an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. About nine months later, Curiosity made a challenging landing on Mars. It successfully used a new landing technology called a sky crane to gently lower it to the surface. Within weeks, Curiosity fulfilled its mission. It found evidence of ancient running water on Mars. It later found organic molecules on Mars as well.
Mission to Mars searching for extra-terrestrial life | 60 Minutes Australia
Are we alone in the universe? Or is there life out there? This question has long plagued mankind. NASA’s rovers, Spirit and Curiosity, have come very close to finding an answer, discovering evidence of water on Mars, but the search for life goes on. Now NASA is gearing up for the next rover mission, and an Australian will play a crucial role in this quest for extra-terrestrial beings.

Walking on Mars (live public talk)
Original air date: July 12, 2018 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0200 UTC) Virtual and augmented reality promise to transport us to places that we can only imagine. When joined with spacecraft and robots, these technologies will extend humanity's presence to real destinations that are equally fantastic. NASA's Operations Laboratory at JPL is spearheading several ambitious projects applying virtual and augmented reality to the challenges of space exploration. Through partnerships with multiple VR and AR companies, scientists on the Curiosity Mars rover mission are exploring the Martian terrain, engineers are finding new ways to collaborate on 3D designs, and astronauts on the International Space Station are preparing to perform their work more efficiently than ever before. The lead of these projects at NASA will share their progress so far, the challenges that lie ahead, and their vision for the future of VR and AR in space exploration. Primary Presenter/Speaker:
Victor Luo – Operations Lab Lead Panel Speakers:
Alice Winter – User Experience Researcher
Parker Abercrombie – OnSight Project Lead

Ancient Organics Discovered on Mars
Since arriving at Mars in 2012, NASA's Curiosity rover has drilled into rocks in search of organics - molecules containing carbon. Organics are the building blocks of all life on Earth, though they can also come from non-living sources. The surface of Mars readily destroys these molecules, making them difficult to detect. Now, Curiosity has discovered ancient organics that have been preserved in rocks for billions of years. This finding helps scientists better understand the habitability of early Mars, and it paves the way for future missions to the Red Planet.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-2YHgc363EdcusLIBbgxzg All Hail Curiosity! Consider the fact that right now, there’s an SUV-sized rover crawling around the surface of Mars, zapping rocks with its laser, scooping and sampling material, and generally giving us the best view we’ve ever seen from the surface of the Red Planet. NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been on the surface of Mars since 2012, following the story of water. When did it first show up on Mars, and was it there long enough to support the biology of life? In its 5 years and counting of exploration, Curiosity has pushed our understanding of the Red Planet forward, and paved the way for the next generation of gigantic, nuclear powered rovers headed to Mars to search for life itself.
