NASA’s Curiosity Is On Mars For 7 Years And Here Are Its 30 Best Photos


We all love a good space movie and facts about space. Though Mars has historically been against Earth’s attempts to visit it, NASA’s curiosity was never touched by the failed attempts. They finally reached the planet through the sturdy wheels of Mars rovers. Since 1996, Mars exploration has undergone a Renaissance. With Oppy closing down in 2018, Curiosity was the only Mars rover left on the planet. The little robotically operated machine that’s been trekking over the emptiness and testing it for nearly 7 years has managed to collect a rather awesome gallery of photographs for us to look at.

Here’s how Curiosity looked 7 years ago and now
