NASA’s Curiosity heads to Yellowknife Bay; Mountain climb is next

Curiosity continues its mission on Mars. Next stop: Yellowknife Bay.

NASA’s Curiosity rover began its latest mission on Mars, traveling to a region dubbed “Yellowknife Bay.”

The one-tone rover used its percussive drill to collect a sample from the interior of a rock, a feat never before attempted on Mars, NASA officials said in a statement released over the holidays.
