NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover successfully arrived near Sharp Mountain, where scientists believe there may be life on Mars

According to foreign media reports, NASA’s Curiosity rover has finally arrived at the destination of this exploration plan: Sharp Hill, where scientists believe there may be traces of life on Mars, so we are all curious number of this mission full of expectation If you find microbes on Mars, clues, then this will be the first extraterrestrial life and its meaning is immeasurable. Curiosity arrived in August 2012 and successfully landed on Mars, but relatively slow forward speed, two years after arrival, the way Curiosity conducted a number of scientific research, discovered the existence of moist environment of Mars is some evidence that, after NASA’s Mars probe also found similar evidence.

Curiosity is moving away from the surface of Mars has reached 9 km more than the current number of curious place where Gaelic is known impact craters, while Sharp Mountain is located in central crater, Curiosity has since landed on Mars after a mountain in the direction toward the Sharp forward, while Curiosity landing on Mars is still a major achievement in the history of mankind aerospace, innovative sky crane program will weigh one ton of Curiosity successfully landed on Mars surface, this program had no success stories, Spirit and Opportunity The landing approach for cushioning airbags, but the weight is too curious numbers can not be used this way.

NASA’s Planetary Science Division director Jim Greene believes Curiosity mission opened a new chapter, we will expand the investigation of life on Mars, Curiosity’s travel speed of 3.8 centimeters per second, the use of nuclear power plant, American Astronautical Bureau plans to make the surface of Mars Curiosity Mars traveling two years, the Curiosity installed 17 cameras, weighs 900 kg. Before Curiosity landing Gail crater, NASA selected the 60 candidate landing site, because there are likely to find clues to ancient life on Mars.

Curiosity rover cost of $ 2.5 billion, is a mobile chemical laboratory planet can analyze samples of rock, soil, air and so on Mars, NASA’s Curiosity team hopes to be able to give full play to their potential, in Sharp had a long mountain activities. Sharp mountain heights, although not very high, but there are still certain slope, and therefore need to be climbing Curiosity forward, due to the use of nuclear power plant No. curious, so do not worry about solar panels is covered with Martian dust, in the next one Martian year, scientists will work to look for clues to life on Mars.
