The Curiosity Rover is beginning its second year on Mars, having touched down on the surface of the red planet on Aug. 6, 2012. The mission has been a total success as the rover found evidence that Mars once had conditions that would support life. It hasn’t found that there was life or if the planet could support life as we know it, just that conditions were favorable. Still that’s pretty big news.

It has already meet the goal of scientists that sent the rover to Mars and now anything they can get back would be icing on the cake. The target for the second year is Mount Sharp: a 3 mile high mound which scientists believe is a key area on Mars because it may contain different layers of Martian history.
