Celebration, when the Curiosity Rover safely found the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012 ... and celebration this week on Capitol Hill as NASA and members of Congress mark the one year anniversary of the Martian landing and showcase the ways the rover is helping us get to know Mars.
During another event to celebrate Curiosity at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, members of the Curiosity team presented White House officials with a replica of the plaque flown on the mission and signed by the President. Curiosity’s landing ignited a new generation of excitement which grew even more when the rover found evidence that Mars could’ve sustained life in the past.
NASA and the rest of Earth looks forward to future finds on Mars from Curiosity and other missions.
