Scientists to temporarily lose contact with Mars rover Curiosity

March 30, 2013

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity will be on its own for a little while starting next week.

Jim Bell, a professor for Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration, told us why and what it will be doing in the interim. Bell plays a big part in getting the photos Rover takes back to Earth.
