Recent Updates on Mars Curiosity

After 2 years and nearly 9 kilometers of driving, NASA's Mars Curiosity has arrived at the base of Mount Sharp to begin a whole new phase of exploration. Video from September 11.

And in video from September 25 - Curiosity has collected its first drill sample from the base of Mount Sharp. The scientific allure of the layered mountain inside a crater drew the team to choose this part Mars as its landing site.

Amazing real work is being done far away from Earth with such advanced robots working with teams here directing the process!
