Lego will be making a Mars Curiosity Rover set

Rejoice brickheads and space exploration fans! Lego will soon be releasing an official NASA Mars Curiosity Rover set. It will be just like building your very own Curiosity rover, only far less expensive and you won’t have to assemble it in a million dollar clean room.

Peter Molyneux’s ‘Curiosity’ is done and we have a winner. And inside the cube is…

A video of Peter Molyneux talking to hear himself talk. Well that’s a surprise. The person who finally broke through to the center of the cube was Brian Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland. Well, that was fun. Ish.

White-balanced photo of Mount Sharp on Mars looks like it could have come out of the American southwest
This mosaic of images from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity shows Mount Sharp in a white-balanced color adjustment that makes the sky look overly blue but shows the terrain as if under Earth-like lighting. White-balancing helps scientists recognize rock materials based on their experience looking at rocks on Earth. The Martian sky would look more of a butterscotch color to the human eye. White balancing yields an overly blue hue in images that have very little blue information, such as Martian landscapes, because the white balancing tends to overcompensate for the low inherent blue content.

What the hell is this weird, shiny object on the surface of Mars?

Curiosity has been living up to its name up there on the red planet, using its eyes and claws to look at Mars in ways we’ve never seen before. And it’s found some unusual stuff, like this metallic looking shiny object poking out of the dirt. ALIENS!

Curiosity rover successfully drills into Martian virgin bedrock

In another outer space tech first, this past week, the Curiosity rover became the first manmade object to drill into the surface of another world when it drilled out a 2.5” deep circle of exposed bedrock on the Martian surface.

Curiosity rover gets ready to drill down into the surface of Mars

Now that Curiosity has seen a couple sights and thoroughly tested out much of its equipment, it’s time to get down to serious business. And that serious business is drilling down into the surface of Mars to see what’s under the hood. And since this will be the first time we’ve ever actually drilled down into a rock on the surface of any planet, this could be a really big deal.

NASA’s Curiosity rover uses its brush to wipe a section of the Martian surface clean of dust
In order to try and get a certain amount of Martian soil samples as dust free as possible, Curiosity is equipped with a wire brush that scrubs red dust from rocks to get a better look at what’s underneath. A couple days ago, Curiosity tried its brush for the first time on a section of flat rock, and this is what that rock looks like under the red Martian soil.

This would have to be the best thing I’ve seen in Curiosity, so far. What about everyone else?

Curiosity soil samples show a vast chemical diversity, but no signs of life

The results from Curiosity’s soil scoops are in, and while it looks like that the red Martian soil is much more chemically diverse than previously thought, there isn’t yet any signs of organic chemistry that could lead to life, though NASA is still hoping.

Curiosity rover finds… Mardi Gras beads on Mars?

Well into its fourth month, NASA’s Curiosity rover will be focusing its attention this month on a place called Matijevic Hill, where the robot has stumbled upon strings of small, shiny spherical rock and plastic formations reminiscent of the “blueberry” formations previously discovered, but they also kind of look like left over Mardi Gras beads. Just imagine Mars on Mardi Gras, chock full of three breasted Martian women. Rrawr.
