Continuing with our countdown to this weekend’s landing on Mars, here’s the team from PHD Comics with a tour of Jet Propulsion Laboratories and an up-close look at a full-size replica of the Mini Cooper-sized Curiosity rover. Behold the coolest part of the mission, the telescoping rock laser, as it searches for … ducks?
TWO DAYS, PEOPLE!
Here’s the previous Mars Curiosity posts, including:
- The chemistry we’ll be studying on Mars
- Seven Minutes of Terror: The completely insane landing sequence.
- How did we get this thing to Mars in the first place?
- And Tom Jones with a plea for this to not be our last Mars mission. Tell our government to invest in the future!
We’re almost there! Fingers crossed!
