This Week on Mars: Holiday at Grandma's House!

Mars Rover gets some time off at rocky rest area

By  

It's been a few weeks since we checked in with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for a Mars Curiosity Rover report. Luckily, we have the latest video from them, giving us some news about what's going to happen over the holidays.

The team continues to look for a suitable place to dig for some more soil samples, and then head to a location dubbed "Grandma's House" for a couple of days of rest (although no real rest for Rover - it still has to take photos and be monitored by JPL in case any real Martians show up).

See, even Mars-based devices get to spend some time with Grandma. Go JPL!
