We’re engineers, scientists and the Curiosity rover from NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission. Ask us anything!

We're celebrating the third "landiversary" of the Curiosity Mars rover

We’re celebrating the third “landiversary” of the Curiosity Mars rover. She touched down Aug. 6, 2012, in Eastern Time and UTC, but it was still Aug. 5 here at mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. We’re looking forward to your questions about the mission so far, our roles on it and the continuing science in Mars’ Gale Crater.
