A star-studded landing far far away on Mars by Curiosity.
Mars Curiosity Zoom
Curiosity checks herself out
Takes a self-portrait
Communicate, communicate, communicate.
She flicks back her hair
Listens to the least inspiring Beatles track
“Good Morning, Good Morning,”
[How boring, how boring],
The cock crows, the dog barks, the horse neighs, the lion roars,
Sounds of thunder: hooves, hounds bay, the hunter’s horn blares.
MARDI shows full-frame views from the rover’s NavCams.
They look at the rim of Gale Crater,
The Martian landscape they’ll view later,
Hotter than anticipated,
Warmer than evaluated.
Surface-optimised flight software boom,
SAM and DAN will be checked out soon.
