Curiosity has been a busy girl on Mars. The wind sensor didn’t work and it would have been nice to see a windsock on her mast. They didn’t put one on.
Curiosity has performed two tests and passed with flying colors. The first test zapping a rock. The second test was going for a drive on Mars. She also took great pictures of all this.
All the pictures are from NASA.

First is a diagram of Curiosity.

Here she is in the lab on Earth.
