NASAs Curiosity rover has reached out in a Martian handshake like gesture welcoming the end of solar conjunction that marks the resumption of contact with her handlers back on Earth evidenced in a new photo mosaic of images captured as the robot and her human handlers contemplate a short traverse to a 2nd drilling target in the next few days.
Well move a small bit and then drill another hole, said John Grotzinger to Universe Today. Grotzinger, of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., leads NASAs Curiosity Mars Science Laboratory mission.

It isn't cute. It's just annoying.

Drilling...on Mars......well I guess if we can’t frack in the US...Mars is the go-to place to be.
