Just wanted to share these amazing pictures from the Curiosity mission. For more news and the latest from Mars go to the NASA site HERE.

The CSIRO-managed Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex¬†(CDSCC) was one of three tracking stations in NASA’s Deep Space Network¬† to keep track of Curiosity and captured the first signals from the craft when it landed.

  1. Happiness to the world. Soon it will require evidence of life. I believe that intelligent life, but it is very -but really very- different from our land. Can we recognize it?

  2. So tell me….. What’s filling the parachute??

    1. Air off course .. What else ? .. I dub this mission a success .. We have found life supporting evidence on mars….Air

  3. A photo of a robot parachuting onto the surface of Mars… so epic!
