She Roves! Curiosity Hits the Martian Road

ASA’s new Mars probe lived up to its billing as a rover on Wednesday with a successful first test drive, its first motion since settling down inside an ancient impact basin on Aug. 6.

oh, the places she’ll go…

Favorite quote of the story from a NASA project manager: “We built a rover, so unless the rover roves, we really haven’t accomplished anything.”
