I enjoyed this article because it gave me insight on just how the Curosity rover works, and the general procedures of NASA that allow them to come to accurate conclusions about their observations. I don’t understand all the technical details of the Curiosity rover, but it seems like a very intricate machine that those who worked on it should be proud of. It’s amazing that finding something as simple as a rock can provide information about the entire formation process of Mars. With science in general, I’ve always been amazed at how many inferences can be drawn from one simple observation. This article made me much more excited for more Curiosity discoveries, as I had pessimistic hopes before.
