NASA Mars rover Curiosity wishes itself a happy 6th anniversary – CNET

It’s been 6 years since Curiosity touched Mars for the first time. Despite the fact that no human ever stepped on Mars it’s amazing to see pictures of Red Planet taken just like with your phone camera.

Happy sixth anniversary to the Mars Curiosity Rover, which tweeted out a little anniversary greeting to itself on Sunday. “I touched down on #Mars six years ago,” the tweet reads. “Celebrating my 6th landing anniversary with the traditional gift of iron… oxide. (It puts the red in Red Planet.)” Curiosity landed at Bradbury Landing (named for the late sci-fi author Ray Bradbury) in Mars’ Gale Crater back in 2012, and has been exploring Mars ever since.
