The US space agency (Nasa) is about to launch its latest Mars rover “Persistence” on Mars. But let’s not forget that the existing Curiosity robot is still there and working well after landing in the equatorial Gale crater in 2012. Curiosity celebrates 3,000 Martian days or Sols on the surface of the Red Planet on Tuesday. The
Mission scientific team has put together a series of photos that capture some of the main achievements of the rover.
