NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover Report - January 18, 2013: BIG Day Coming

 If all goes well, today, January 31, 2013, is a BIG day for the Mars Curiosity Rover. Today it will use its drill to remove material from a vein that appears to indicate water percolated down through the rock fissures over time and left these mineral deposits behind. IF the drill works as it should, and so far there's no indication that it shouldn't, then the entire suite of ten science instruments on the rover will be operating to full capacity with years of exciting exploration ahead. Stay tuned for the results.

Speaking of Mars (sorry, entertaining myself here):
