Curiosity Rover’s first drive: set to test rock- vapourising laser

As per latest reports, car sized NASA’s biggest Curiosity is all set to drive its six wheels robotic Rover on Red Planet Gale crater’s Martian soil.

The robotic vehicle has Chemistry and Camera instrument called ChemCam powerful rock zipping laser which will target Martian’s rock to vaporize it just to the side of the vehicle on the floor of Gale Crater.

The first ever test that will test on other world soil termed as Glenelg by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Source said, Roger Wiens, principal investigator of the ChemCam instrument said, “Rock N165 looks like your typical Mars rock, about three inches wide. It’s about 10 feet away.”

“We are going to hit it with 14 millijoules of energy 30 times in 10 seconds. It is not only going to be an excellent test of our system, it should be pretty cool too,” Wiens added.

Curiosity which landed on Mars on August5, has also bring images of the surrounding terrain at Martian, measured the local environment and surrounding temperature, according to JPL.

Reports said that within coming days, NASA team will test each of four steerable (front and back) wheels of the rover and see the powerful computerized Robotic vehicle are ready to go forward.

Meanwhile, in next week, much amazing and unseen moment are expected to see via this NASA’s car sized world best Curiosity rover that landed with object to find the habitual possibility on Mars hitting world’s biggest experiment.
