Landing on Mars in August 2012, NASA’s Curiosity rover continues on its mission to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support life.

Indeed, the robot has gathered compelling information regarding the planet’s habitability for life.

New imagery of Curiosity’s wheels show the wear and tear of trekking across the rocky surface of the Red Planet.
