Global Geekery Monday - Recap of Day 2 of Geek Week
In other Geek news one year ago today, NASA's Curiosity rover touched down on the surface of Mars. The NASA rover team sang "Happy Birthday" to the rover by using Curiosity's Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument. It sang Happy Birthday by vibrating at different frequencies. In one year the rover has sent back over 36,700 images at their full resolutions, driven about a mile, and analyzed material from two rocks. It's also completed its primary objective determining Mars was once conducive to life. Happy Birthday Mr. Rover!
