Mars Curiosity Rover Leaves First Tracks on the Distant Planet, Let’s Roll!

NASA

It has been a couple of weeks since NASA landed the Mars Curiosity rover on the red planet and it’s starting to leave it’s mark.

Curiosity completed its first test run today by going forward about 15 feet, rotating 120 degrees and then reversing about 8 feet. The rover is now about 20 feet from its original landing site.

The image above was taken from a 360-degree panorama photo released by NASA which show the first tracks left by Curiosity and marks left from the use of the space crane that lowered the rover to the planets surface.
