Mars Rover marks a kind of anniversary. For their stay on the red planet he did a lot of outdoor interesting, for example, found conditions for the existence of life in the past.

Mars science laboratory NASA’s Curiosity Rover has reached a new milestone – two-thousand Martian days, provedennyh on the red planet.

6 Aug 2012 the Curiosity landed on Mars in Gale crater, as it is well visible the deeper layers of Martian soil, revealing the geological history of the red planet. It is a stand-alone chemical laboratory.

Curiosity, which English translates as curiosity, has found traces of freshwater lake, with all the elements for life and collected other data that allow scientists to conclude that the conditions for its suschestvoanie living beings have survived on Mars millions of years.

The Rover also received information indicating where the water on Mars is present not only in glaciers and close to the surface of the planet.

Also Curiosity found in one of the boulders on Mars traces of granite and other rocks that make up the base of the continental crust of the Earth, which once again suggests that the Red planet was similar to ours in the past.

Earlier this year, scientists published a virtual tour of Mars made on the basis of photos Curiosity. The video showed the route from the landing site to Yellowknife Bay and up to the crossing of the dunes of Bagnold.

On the background of the photos show mount sharp and the Gale crater, which once was probably a giant lake with suitable conditions for life.

Note that the white balance in the photographs has been adjusted so that the colors of the mountains and the rocks looked the same in daylight on Earth.
