re: 11 Cool Tools NASA Curiosity Brought To Mars
Just wait until they send the second rover up to Mars with all the upgrades and changes the discovered form the first trials. With as many cameras as Curiosity has it is sure to monitor some better uses for the tools they currently , plus some new ideas for the next trip and future tools. The capabilities of these cameras is amazing from chemical analyzing to communicating images back to us for our viewing pleasure, so they also work almost like a phone home.This machine is truly state of the art, and although grabbing a rock to analyze might not seem like a big deal, when the rock that was selected was selected due to the Alpha Particle Xray feature, then grabbing rocks becomes pretty interesting topic
