There are 2 comments on Safe Driving on Mars

  1. I’ve been following Curiosity since launch and love this article about an alum involved with the project. However, I think the part about finding organic compounds is inaccurate. On November 29th Curiosity posted “Everybody, chill. After careful analysis, there are NO Martian organics in recent samples. Update Dec. 3:” on the official facebook page.

    Another alum, Anita Sengupta, was also involved in the project as an EDL Engineer. She was featured in the “7 minutes of terror” video about the landing sequence.

    Thank you for the article! Great to see Curiosity getting some BU love.
