Once Again NASA Has Two Fully Active Rovers on Mars

NASA Mars Rover Begins Driving at Bradbury Landing

"NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has begun driving from its landing site, which scientists announced today they have named for the late author Ray Bradbury. Making its first movement on the Martian surface, Curiosity's drive combined forward, turn and reverse segments. This placed the rover roughly 20 feet (6 meters) from the spot where it landed 16 days ago."

Keith's note: The other name under consideration by NASA for this location would have honored astronaut Sally Ride.
