Yes, the Curiosity rover is on the move, evidenced by the rover tracks seen from above by the outstanding HiRISE camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. If you look closely, visible are the rover’s wheels and even the camera mast. While this image’s color has been enhanced to show the surface details better, this is still an amazing view of Curiosity’s activities, displaying the incredible resolving power of the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment.

Tracks from the first drives of NASA's Curiosity rover are visible in this image captured by the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The primary purpose of our existence is to ensure that humans safely reach Mars, with a habitat, for exploration, and human settlement, within our lifetime. Our primary approach is to provide an online transparent fundraising venue for the Mars Prize Fund, which can be thought of as a public savings account for the first successful human Mars mission.

Icebreaker would send a robotic lander to the same region of Mars visited by the Phoenix mission in 2007. After landing at Mars' polar latitudes, Icebreaker would use its tools to penetrate the surface & excavate samples. The goal is to see what is hiding beneath the ice caps, & whether or not Icebreaker could unlock a treasure trove of organics, & possibly signs of past or present life on Mars. | The Icebreaker drill in the laboratory at Honeybee Robotics.

Curiosity Rover, the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is a long-range, long-duration, roving mobile laboratory . It is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program.

The fluid regime of any flying animal, machine, etc. can be summarized by something called the Reynolds Number (Re). The Re is equal to the characteristic length x velocity x fluid density, divided by the dynamic viscosity. It is a measure of the ratio of inertial forces to viscous ones. Your average airplane flies at a high Re: lots of inertia relative to air stickiness. Because the Mars air density is low, the only way to get that inertia is to go really fast.

Building a flying vehicle for Mars would have significant advantages for exploration of the surface. However, to date, all of our surface exploring vehicles and robotic units on Mars have been terrestrial rovers. The problem .
