Curiosity Update

Instruments aboard the Curiosity rover have ingested and analyzed samples of the Martian atmosphere collected near the “Rocknest” site in Gale Crater where the rover is stopped for research. Findings from the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instruments suggest that loss of a fraction of the atmosphere has been a significant factor in the evolution of the planet.
