NASA Has Been Exploring Mars For 8 Long Years, And Here Are Some Great Pictures Of The Red Planet

Although the existence of life on Mars is quite strange and impossible for us to believe, we haven't yet stopped reaching its surface. Humans still reach Mars via the durable wheels of the Mars rovers. The main 4 mars rovers that are sent to Mars are, Curiosity, Opportunity, Sojourner, and Spirit.

With the completion of the mission of the Opportunity rover, Curiosity became the only survivor on the red planet. NASA lost all its contacts with Opportunity on February 13, 2019. Curiosity rover has been exploring the unknown red land alone till today. It had been a successful mission. The foreseen duration of its trip of 687 days was expanded indefinitely. However, it had first landed on Mars on the 6th of August 2012.

The rover is almost spending its 8th anniversary on Mars. But, this time it will have another companion to celebrate the 8th year. The mission of the new rover was scheduled to start in between the 17th of July to the 5th of August 2020. 

Man's interest in the red planet never seems to end. Here are some wonderful images that were released by NASA.
