re: Curiosity's Robotic Arm: Strong, But Not Sensitive
Nasa should talk with Apple about using their touch technology patents on Curiosity's arm. Lol The fact that there is a vehicle roaming around on another planet sending data back to Earth is still fascinating. I am sure that every piece of technology and machinery used on Curiosity will have me in awe. Nasa has already said that these issues will be addressed for future trips.
