Good morning all;
As we know, the incredible Curiosity rover is nearing Mars. This rover is not only the most advanced one ever built, but one of the most advanced mobile robots of any kind. If I had a hat, I would take it off to the guys who designed and built the thing.
Today I stumbled upon an absolutely fantastic piece on Curiosity. It explains what Curiosity is, what it will do, and why all of this is important.
Instead of trying to reproduce it, I'll let you read it for yourselves. It is well worth the time.
