This week, Torsten Zorn, MSL Tacticle Downlink Lead, provides an video update on the Curiosity rover’s activities. It’s been a week of firsts — flexing the rover’s robotic arm, zapping with its laser and giving the roving wheels their first workout. The video provides a great look at the rover’s landing site, named for author Ray Bradbury on the day that would have been his 92nd birthday.
