New Delhi: NASA has been doing extensive research since a long time to fulfill their dream of Mars mission into reality.

Launched in August 2012 on Mars, NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is traversing through every nook and corner to provide us with updates.

This one of the two rovers that has been sent on Mars, has managed to cross the most rugged plateau during the missions 44 months on Mars.

The rover climbed onto the "Naukluft Plateau" of lower Mount Sharp in early March after spending several weeks investigating sand dunes. The plateau's sandstone bedrock has been carved by eons of wind erosion into ridges and knobs. The path of about a quarter mile (400 meters) westward across it is taking Curiosity toward smoother surfaces leading to geological layers of scientific interest farther uphill.
