After traveling eight-and-a-half months and 352 million miles, NASA rover Curiosity landed on Mars at 1:33am Eastern Time this morning.
The high-tech craft hit the top of the Martian atmosphere at 13,000mph, and was then slowly lowered by a radical floating ‘sky crane’ inside a massive crater (no I’m not that smart, I just read this)
First pictures sent back within seconds. Curiosity will search for the ingredients of life on the red planet’s surface using a scoop to dig into the soil.
So after hearing all this info, who would you send to Mars to never comeback? I’ll even open it to people you don’t personally know. If you could’ve put any celebrity or enemy on ‘Curiosity’ who would it be and why?
