Latest Scoops

I touched down on #Mars six years ago. Celebrating my 6th landing anniversary with the traditional gift of iron… oxide. (It puts the red in Red Planet.) https://t.co/AgssRU46yh
I shall call her Mini-Me. Build your own robot with these open source rover plans from @NASAJPL 🤖 https://t.co/IDduG0OjPF
@juanjohnjedi The storm has peaked and is starting to clear, however, it could be weeks before it's clear enough over @MarsRovers Opportunity for her to charge up and phone home. Drill bits crossed!
Cloudy skies? No worries. Se #Marse closest approach via livestream tonight, July 30-31 fr @GriffithObservom , featuring experts f @NASAJPLrhttps://t.co/Eb1QcBE6uGom .
I feel so close to you right now. #Mars and Earth haven't been this near since 2003, and won't be again until 2035! Look to the south tonight to see the Red Planet shining bright. https://t.co/2R4uKiIPsQ

Yes, that is the "Duluth" drill hole. Read all about it: https://t.co/dlTIaI343c
Curious how I take #selfies and why you can't see my arm in the shot? Wonder no more. This video explains. https://t.co/emTsloKLYK
Martian haze, all around. The dust storm now circles the whole planet. The measure of atmospheric opacity, or "tau," is over 8.0 here in Gale Crater—the highest I've ever seen. Still safe. Science continues. https://t.co/mTDx9jsiUq
