NASA’s Mars Curiosity has found a 3.7 billion year old lake that could be a clue to whether Mars could have truly supported life.
On August 5, 2012, we watched the lil’ guy make its way to the surface of the red planet. Since then, Curiosity has drilled into Martian rock with lasers, scooped up soil samples, found evidence of water, and set up an adorable Twitter account.
Over the course of 20 minutes, Curiosity fired its million-watt laser at a tiny section of Martian soil 20 times.
This year’s LeWeb was heavy on tech jargon, but we’re beginning to see the Internet of Things take shape.
Mars may once have looked like Earth. It has seasons, polar ice-caps and once supported shallow seas and flowing streams. So did it also once support life?
This clip shows Curiosity’s very first collection of Martian rocks and dust via its robotic arm’s scooper, as seen from the rover’s mast camera.
Nowadays, everybody wanna talk like they got somethin’ to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their lips — just a bunch of gibberish. VentureBeat readers act like they forgot about Mars.
