Curiosity has survived the so called "seven minutes of terror." and has begun sending back spectacular pictures to Earth. Some of these pictures have amazed scientists and has proved that there is life on Mars.
After an epic journey of over 352 million miles that started way back last November
Curiosity has landed and is now on its way to the Gale Crater, which may have been an ancient lake according to scientists. The next stop a journey lasting at least a year will be a massive mountain range to the north where curiosity will climb the highest peak “Mount Sharpe” and take pictures of the surrounding Martian landscape.
Even if curiosity should fail to complete its exploration of the Martian landscape the expedition will still be considered a complete success as in its first day on the Red Planet it has taken pictures that will once and for all prove life exists on Mars.
I am pleased to share with you today pictures that have been sent to me from a NASA friend. These pictures have not been released to the General Public. You people will be the first to see them.
The first Picture look carefully at the rocky outcrop to the left something is coming.
Although Scientists originally jumped with joy when receiving this first picture after looking closely they shut down Curiosity to protect it from attack.
This Picture was taken by Curiosity’s armour plated defense camera. Shows a Martian scout closing in
To Late Curiosity under attack Scientists shut Curiosity down
After such an epic journey such a pity that Curiosity’s journey should end in such a terrible way. Scientists will apparently try and launch a rescue mission but are the first to admit that Curiosity’s days are numbered.
