MSL self-portrait, November 2012 (NASA/JPL) NASA's Curiosity Mars rover, which has spent the last several weeks working at a single location on the Martian surface, will soon be on the move again, project scientists said Thursday. The rover has been stopped for over a month by a sand dune, collecting soil samples while also performing other observations. Project scientists said at a briefing Thursday that the rover would be on the move again in the next few days, slowly working its way towards Aeolis Mons (aka Mt. Sharp), the mountain in the center of Gale Crater. Thursday's briefing was primarily to release new results from the rover's weather and radiation monitoring instruments.
