NASA's Mars Curiosity rover continues its exploration of the Red Planet. Now, it's officially reached a major landmark: Mount Sharp. There, the rover will conduct further investigations that could shed light on the ancient history of this planet.
"Curiosity now will begin a new chapter from an already outstanding introduction to the world," said Jim Green, director of NASA's Planetary Science Division, in a news release. "After a historic and innovative landing along with its successful science discoveries, the scientific sequel is upon us."
