NASA’s Robotic Rover Curiosity Has Been On Mars For Over 7 Years And Here’re Its 30 Best Pics

Gorgeous selfies.


It appears that Instagram celebrities and influencers are not the only people with perfect pictures. Curiosity, a robotically navigated rovers on Mars, have been snapping pictures on the red planet for the past 7 years. No man has walked on planet Mars yet, but these pictures uploaded by NASA have given a lot of insight about this planet.

NASA has sent four rovers to Mars so far: Sojourner, Opportunity, Spirit, and Curiosity with Opportunity having finished her mission on February 13, 2019. Curiosity is the only surface that is still intact with communication and it first landed on August 6, 2012.

Here’s Curiosity’s selfie 7 years ago and most recently.

The rover’s original mission duration was 687 days and it was impressive that it can still work until today. NASA has also been sharing pictures of the red planet with followers on their site as well as Instagram of the rover.
