The images coming in from Mars are just amazing! NASA's Curiosity mission is going flawless so far and pictures/video is coming in constantly from 352 million miles away! That is the part that boggles my mind as well. Also on my mind is a question. Do they have a thermometer and other weather instruments on Curiosity? I'm 'curious' myself what the weather is like!
This is the 'image of the day' from www.nasa.gov. From there you can go to the image gallery, check out blogs on the Curiosity, learn more about the mission, and get video of this exploration as well!
The image gallery can be found here:

Oh, you can find us on Facebook and Twitter too! I hear that so many times with businesses and food products such as Drakes Coffee Cakes. What can a coffee cake tweet about?!
Well anyway, the @MarsCuriosity Twitter handle, operated by NASA, already has 880,552 followers as of 9 a.m. Thursday. Yes I'm following him..er her....er it.
NASA's latest mission to Mars. I arrived at the Red Planet, Aug. 5, 2012 PDT (Aug.6 UTC).
That's the description of the account for Curiosity.
Facebook followers aren't as strong for Curiosity as Twitter. With 235,984 'Likes' Curiosity is on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/FOX44LocalNews#!/MarsCuriosity
I encourage you to stay up to date with the latest on the Mars rover. You have two years to do so as Curiosity will be poking rocks and soil to find out what's on the surface of the planet!
