  4. Curiosity Rover Basically Gets Its Learner’s Permit, Drives Itself With New Autonomous Navigation System

    No one likes a backseat driver. Not even robots on Mars.

    The Curiosity Rover tried out a new feature yesterday when it successfully tested out an automatic navigation system that let it decide for itself how to safely drive on Mars. Curiosity doesn't seem old enough to drive, but I guess it's ruled by Martian law at this point.

  6. “Mars Rat” is Just a Rock on Mars, Not a Rat, Because Apparently People Need to Hear That

    Just because a rock looks like an animal doesn't mean that there's a rat on Mars, so everybody relax.

    I've seen this story popping up a few places, and it's been getting on my nerves. What you see in that picture is not some kind of Martian rat or lizard. It is a rock. It's not even a rock that looks that much like a rat or a lizard. Our brains are wired for us to recognize familiar shapes and see faces. That's all this is.

  7. Asteroid 1998 QE2 Will Come So Close Tomorrow, Yet So Far Away

    There's a giant asteroid that's going to be passing very near the Earth, but don't be alarmed. You'll be fine.

    A very large asteroid will pass very close to the Earth on Friday, but it's nothing to worry about. It's only close in astronomical terms, and poses no threat to our planet. So what's all the fuss about? The asteroid, dubbed 1998 QE2, will be a prime target for radar telescopes to study. Those of us with non-radar telescopes might be lucky enough to catch a dim glimpse.

  8. NASA Says Everyone Needs to Chill, Voyager Has Not Left The Solar System

    The Internet's been blowing up over the news that the Voyager 1 spacecraft was the first man-made object to leave our solar system, except that it's not true. NASA and the JPL have announced that, though they're aware of the paper that everyone's talking about, they're not buying it. The official Voyager team says that although it's on the outer edges, Voyager 1 hasn't yet broken out into interstellar space. So calm down. It hasn't happened yet -- but it will eventually.

  10. Mars Looks Like Tatooine In New Panorama of Mount Sharp

    This newly released panoramic image of Mount Sharp located in Mars' Gale Crater can provide valuable information to NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for further aspects of the Curiosity Rover Mission, but it also kind of looks like Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tatooine from Star Wars, so let's just focus on that.
