Last week NASA’s Curiosity Rover conducted a successful test bore into a sandstone slab at “Kimberley”. This week it decided to go for a deep drill excursion into the Martian rock target called “Windjama.
We all have been wondering about that strange “glow” spotted on Mars by Curiosity taking it as as some sort of sign of life. But NASA has debunked this idea saying that the glow was either a shiny rock or a glitch in the rover’s camera.
Scientists have established from the radiation measurements received from the Radiation Assessment Detector on NASA`s Curiosity rover that even though manned missions to Mars could be risky, the radiation hazards are more manageable than originally believed.
