NASA’s Curiosity Has Been Victoriously Completing Its Objectives On Mars For More Than 7 Years, And Here Are Curiosity’s Best 20 Moments!
OK, since NASA’s Curiosity first landed on Mars on August 6, 2012, it has been triumphantly completing its missions throughout the years – in fact, Curiosity did its work so well and held on for so long that its original mission duration of two years (approx) was extended indefinitely (thanks to the NASA’s brilliant scientists for putting up their best work).
Anyway, to mention, until today, we have had four victorious robotically driven Mars rovers (all of which were accomplished by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA) – So far: Sojourner, Opportunity, Spirit, and Curiosity. So you can tell humans have touched Mars through the enduring wheels of Mars rovers.
However, when Opportunity’s mission was called-off on February 13, 2019, and NASA lost all contact with the carrier, Curiosity became the sole survivor on the red planet, aka – advancing the relay of discoveries on Mars.
