Where has our Curiosity Taken Us?


Humans have been curious about the Universe since we were capable of looking up. But we’ve only been able to travel to and explore other worlds for a few decades. In that time we’ve learned a lot, but there’s so much left to discover... which is why we send rovers to Mars. These mobile labs are extensions of our eyes and hands, testing the Red Planet’s surface to see what it’s like and what it once was... and whether it could have ever supported life. In this talk, you’ll find out just where our Curiosity has taken us.
