Are you ready for some science? No matter where you are, you can join us for a live public talk from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., about the Curiosity rover's first year on Mars. This talk will revisit the dramatic, nail-biting landing and some of the mission's top science results.
The speaker is JPL's Ashwin Vasavada, deputy project scientist for the Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity mission.
Since successfully landing on Mars on Aug. 5, 2012, PDT (Aug. 6, 2012, EDT), Curiosity has been refining much of what we know about the Red Planet. The car-sized rover has already achieved its main science goal of revealing that ancient Mars could have supported life. Curiosity is currently en route to investigate the base of 3-mile-high (about 5 kilometers) Mount Sharp, whose exposed layers might hold intriguing information about Mars' history.
