Curiosity Rover Update: The Old Brush Off

Justin Lin from the Mars Science Laboratory team gives the latest video update from the Curiosity rover mission. For the first time the rover used its Dust Removal Tool, and the team is looking for a good rock to perform the first use of the drill.

You can see some of the panoramas that Lin talks about in our previous article, “Curiosity Touches Mars at Yellowknife Bay and Drives to Snake River for Drilling.
