Curiosity has finished his second drill test and is analyzing the rock dust for data. He took a moment out of his very busy day to take a snap shot and send it back to us. Here he sits upon the blasted landscape of mars (look carefully and you can see the drill bit hole in front of him):
Meanwhile people have been scouring his photos for anything and everything of interest and it seems he is not alone. People from the UFO Sightings Daily website spotted this little creature in the rocky dust not far from Curiosity. It appears a rat lives upon Mars.
