Get yer’ tin-foil hats on, kids.
Curiosity has found Twitter.
The rover, named Curiosity, which NASA has been working on for 10 years, is ON Mars. Right now.
Like, wow, dude.
The contraption (about the size of a Mini-cooper),
It journeyed 352 miles (holy Martians!) to determine if water-related clay and minerals are present on the planet. Samples of air, rocks, and soil will be taken to determine if Mars can sustain life.
Essentially NASA has spent billions of dollars gathering up top scientists and mathematicians to …
put a backhoe on a planet to see what kind of dirt is there.
Sounds like farming.
I love it.
You can keep up with Curiosity Rover, that (who?) has been chirping away on its very own Twitter account (go figure!) here.
