Curiosity Rover Report: At Grandma’s House

MSL team member Colette Lohr, the Tactical Uplink Lead, provides the latest video update on the Curiosity rover. The rover is at a location fittingly dubbed “Grandma’s House” during the holidays, and there should be many more adventures during 2013.

    …and my Report # 0001:

    Two weeks ago I dreamed that this Mars Rover had
    dreamed that it had found a (fossilized) bone, and that the bone had an
    inscription on it that said: “A curse on anyone that digs up this weapon
    that crushed 27 skulls.” Then the
    Rover started to shake and roll towards a cliff and it rolled off the edge.
