Description

Curiosity is a car-sized unmanned rover designed to explore and examine the Gale crater on Mars. Launched on 26 November 2011 from Cape Canaveral, Curiosity touched down on Mars on 6 August 2012 for the start of its two year mission which was subsequently extended indefinitely. Curiosity remains active as of May 2021, and formed the basis for Perseverance, which sports a similar design but was moderately upgraded with new equipment; Perseverance is intended to explore the Jezero crater.

This casting features a camera stalk that rotates fully.
