Like many Americans this summer, NASA’s Curiosity Rover is taking a road trip – but on Mars.

The nearly eight-year-old mission is led through an approximately 1.6 km long traverse on which it continues to climb a mountain to learn more about the history of the planet – and whether it could have been habitable for microbial life, its ancient past.
