NASA says the image in "curiosity" arm on the left side of the dark Pingdingshan height of about 15 meters, the distance rover is about 90 meters away. Curiosity’s primary purpose was to study the surface of the planet, and to find out if there were any signs of survival. In the follow-up period of the extension of the task, curiosity began to climb the mountain SHARP and young along the way to carry out research on the exposed strata. The main goal is to figure out how the surface of the freshwater lake on Mars has gradually evolved into a harsh and barren world on Mars today.   (commissioning editor: Wei Yan, Zhao Zhuqing)相关的主题文章:
