Mars rover completes first drive


“We’re in a great place to do some science,” says Matt Heverly in yesterday’s BBC News video after Mars rover Curiosity successfully executed its first 120 degree turn.

Curiosity landed on Mars two weeks ago, in a plain dubbed, “Bradbury Landing,” as a tribute to novelist Ray Bradbury for the inspiration he brought to NASA’s team with his book, “The Martian Chronicles.”

If there is life on Mars, it’s safe to say we’ll soon find out.
