Curiosity continues to work in good health. The rover traveled 30 meters during Sol 26, on Sept. 1. The drive included a test of the rover’s “visual odometry” capability for using onboard analysis of images to determine the distance it has traveled.
Throughout Sept., NASA Now classroom videos highlight various aspects of Curiosity’s mission on Mars. Be sure to check out NASA Now: Mars Month on the NASA Explorer Schools Virtual Campus.
