The Martian rover has now been trundling around on the surface for a year. The “seven minutes of terror” as the rover entered the planet’s atmosphere and plummeted to the surface was a tense moment for the NASA staff who designed Curiosity, but it all worked out fine and the robot touched down after its journey of 355 million mile journey from Earth.

During its year it has made some exciting discoveries about Mars’ past potential for life. Check out the source link below for a summary.

So raise a glass and wish Curiosity happy anniversary, and may it have many more successful years.
