This week we’ve been having a look at the Mars rover, Curiosity. We had a look at the amazing technology that went into getting Curiosity safely to the surface of Mars and at some of the fascinating, new information the scientists have discovered. Our observations were mainly done just through viewing the NASA and JPL websites and holding discussions on the topics. Sometimes the excitement such a discussion generates doesn’t need to be bogged down with formalised writing and this was certainly one of those moments. The students were clearly interested in this topic and the depth of their knowledge and understanding regarding space and space exploration surprised me. To see what some of the fuss was about have a look at the video below.
