NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover has reportedly hit the “jackpot’ on the Red Planet.
According to NASA administrators, the rover has arrived at a site widely seen as the perfect location for determining whether water once flowed across the surface of the planet. NASA engineers have spent the better half of a month directing the rover to the location, where white veins of minerals course through rocks on the floor of Mars’s Gale Crater. Scientists say these rock provide some of the strongest evidence yet that the rover Curiosity’s landing site once was a wetter, warmer place.
