Human beings can’t go to Mars just yet, but scientists at NASA did the next best thing — they sent in a robot to look around for us.
Get to studying ‘rover‘ right now in VocabNetwork’s NASA Endeavors studylist.
Mars has a new Earthling inhabitant — a small remote-controlled research vehicle used for collecting samples, aptly named Curiosity.
The rover is the largest one anyone has ever sent to the moon, the size of a small car. Along with the usual cameras, the rover also has experiments to carry out on the soil to look for traces of life.
The rover-Curiosity Landing Vocablet highlights one of NASA’s most recent achievements, and we can only wait and see what Curiosity discovers.
Did you watch the rover landing on Monday/Sunday (depending on time zone)? What do you think the rover might find on Mars?
