NASA Rover Curiosity Makes First Mars Trip, Continues to Make History!

 All is well with the Curiosity rover's drive system as it makes its first test drive on Mars. The rover is ready to go. It has fired its laser, used its chemistry cam, and now started its long journey of discovery on Mars. Our avatar is now ready to take us exploring ...  and with HD cameras so we at home can join the mission vicariously. What more could you want? Well, maybe Marvin the Martian showing up ... but besides that.

Let's hope some quaint little town doesn't crop up with long dead relatives of the rover crew eager to great them. That's my round about way of saying the crew has honored sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury by naming the landing site after him.
