Weekly Space Hangout: Piquing Our Curiosity with Dr. Ashwin Vasavada

On August 5, 2022, a plucky little rover named Curiosity celebrated its 10th Anniversary on the surface of Mars. Since being lowered on Mars that summer day it has continued to exceed all mission expectations. For ten years, Curiosity has called Gale Crater and the foothills of Mount Sharp “home,” all while wandering around the name of science and traveling nearly 18 miles (29 kilometers) and ascending 2,050 feet (625 meters). What have we been able to learn about Mars during this decade? And what lies ahead for the “Little Rover that Could?” Join us tonight as Dr. Ashwin Vasavada brings piques our “Curiosity” and answers these questions.
