Curiosity Rover
Welcome to my world. New @latimes virtual reality tour of Mars' Gale Crater:… #JourneytoMars
Where on Mars will the first footprints be? #JourneytoMars workshop Oct 27-30. Watch live:…

Dozens of images collected by the Mars Hand Lens Imager #MAHLI were used to put together this perspective of #Curiosity. This image collected at the 'Big Sky' drilling site is pointed toward the west-northwest. Looking in the lower left corner you can see grey dust and a 0.63in/1.6cm diameter hole f
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads. #BackToTheFuture #JourneyToMars
Did you see the new Hubble maps of Jupiter? Nice neighborhood, @NASAJuno. 4K video+info:
Why doesn't my arm show up in #selfies? This 15-second video explains:
No shame in my #selfie game. These pics help my team see the state of hardware over time.
This image of Mount Sharp was taken in the "Kimberly" area back in 2014. It has recently been determined by Mars Science Laboratory #MSL project scientists that billions of years ago Mars was capable of storing water in lakes for extended time periods. This image was color balanced so the rocks and
An ancient lake stood where Mount Sharp is now. The water's source remains a mystery. #smh
#TheMartian didn't worry about radiation, but real astronauts would. I'm helping & it's RAD
Greetings from Mars! Here's what's up in the foothills of Mount Sharp #JourneyToMars
Why the sky is blue in this Mars pic? It's white-balanced to help the team with analysis
The team @NASAKennedy took #TheMartian's Mackenzie Davis on a virtual #JourneyToMars with photos I recently sent back
At the transition of rough rock to sand there are dark vertical streaks called recurring slope lineae (#RSL). RSL forms during warm weather and fades as temperatures decrease. Scientists speculate that liquid water is involved in their formation. RSL is composed of perchlorate salts which can absorb
Curiosity took dozens of #MastCam images to complete this mosaic of a petrified sand dune. Unlike prior dunes, this dune seems to be deposited by wind, not water. The geometry and orientation of the structure provide clues about the direction of the ancient winds that produced it. The first of these
The spice must flow, but this dune is petrified. This Mars sandstone likely deposited by wind
This low-angle 'selfie' of Curiosity was captured by the Mars Hand Lens Imager #MAHLI and stitched together from dozens of images. You'll see the drill dust from the "Buckskin" rock target where #Curiosity collected its seventh soil sample. This was the first drilling operation since an intermittent
My twin at @NASAJPL will send her name to Mars on @NASAInSight. Got your boarding pass yet?…
There is no spoon. This weird Mars feature is likely a ventifact—a rock shaped by wind. Info:
The Little Rover: The circular version of my recent selfie inspired this work by MAHLI's Megan Kennedy Wu. Merci!
Go, bots! 50 years of @NASA robots have laid the groundwork for future human missions on the #JourneyToMars
How do I take #selfies and why isn't my whole arm in the shot? Watch + learn:…
