Earth, Venus, and Jupiter as seen from Mars
RIP Opportunity but no one is remembering her twin, Spirit. After one of her wheels jammed Spirit limped on (in reverse) for months until she got stuck in the Martian regolith 9 years ago and starved / froze to death. A good little rover she was. Thank you Spirit for your service, 2004-2010

I have waited all my life to do this
We have seen so many pictures and yet I had no idea of the Curiosity scale until I saw this. It's not a small rover!!
The bacteria were added to the first sample today. The temperature and humidity was changed to achieve maximum efficiency. Some info about the plant: GMO potato seed, contained within controlled environment (humidity, sunlight, temperature, radiation, frequency). Further info and results soon!

Mars Vegetation UPDATE, today the samples were received and we each got one home. The deadline is on 2-3 weeks. I will further inform you for my decisions and I will ask your thoughts on them, and I would like to hear any other suggestions. 😁👍
Greetings! I hope that you are still interested on my project! I will post an update within the next 2 days to fully explain you my project updates! As for now, I can say that the bacteria infected potato has grown 15% less than we expected, but the other plants seem to grow within the expected rage
