In 2012 NASA’s Curiosity rover touched down on the surface of Mars. With its rover named Curiosity,
Mars Science Laboratory mission is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of
robotic exploration of the red planet. Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an
environment able to support small life forms called microbes. In other words, its mission is to
determine the planet’s “habitability.”
