The Curiosity Rover’s Most Amazing Discoveries – SciShow


The Curiosity rover is an amazing feat of engineering. The fact that it is, right now, on a whole other PLANET is hard to fathom. It is something that is hard for us to understand, as normies, how truly amazing this is. In it’s time on Mars, Curiosity has done quite a lot of exploring. This video covers some of what it has found!

 

From Youtube:

It might feel like it was only yesterday that the Curiosity rover touched down on Mars, but in August, the rover celebrated its fifth birthday! For a kindergartener, it’s made some really impressive discoveries.
