NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" Launched on Red Planet Exploration Mission
NASA’s Super Rover Curiosity, the most technologically complex and scientifically capable robot built by humans to explore the surface of another planet, has launched its mission to explore The Mars planet enabling a quantum leap in mankind’s pursuit of Martian microbes and signatures of life beyond The Earth.
NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity", which is cost $2.5 billion in account of Mars Science Laboratory mission, is launched from Florida Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Saturday. Curiosity is a dream machine of Mars scientists, according to Ashwin Vasavada, MSL deputy project scientist at Pasadena.
NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" is not only the most technically capable rover ever sent to another planet, but it's actually the most capable scientific explorer ever sent out to outer space. Curiosity started it's life designed in 2004 and at one ton it weighs five times more than its Mars rover predecessors Spirit and Opportunity. During the 23 months after landing, Curiosity will analyze dozens of samples drilled from rocks or scooped from the ground as it explores with greater range than any previous Mars rover.
Curiosity has 10 science instruments altogether to search for evidence about whether Mars has had environments favorable for microbial life, including the chemical ingredients for life. Curiosity will use a laser to look inside rocks and release the gasses so that its spectrometer can analyze and send the data back to Earth.
NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" Landing VideoHere under is the 11 minutes animation video of the NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" Launched on Red Planet Exploration Mission. The video reveals details about the NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" and particularly its landing sequence which involves a parachute descent which eventually releases a little booster that hovers over the surface and deploys the rover Curiosity by lowering it with a cable:
Just as we followed Opportunity and Spirit on their everyday adventure through the years where sometimes we encountered funny moments and at times heart stopping, nail biting ones as well as the sad day we said so long but not goodbye to our beloved Spirit, the problem child, we will follow NASA Mars Rover "Curiosity" on its Mars The Red Planet Exploration Mission and her new adventures she will encounter. We wish her a good luck and a safe journey ):
