Mars Rover Mission Progresses Toward Resumed Drilling

Quote

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity team is working to restore Curiosity's sample-drilling capability using new techniques. The latest development is a preparatory test on Mars.

The five-year-old mission is still several months from the soonest possible resumption of drilling into Martian rocks. Managers are enthusiastic about successful Earth-based tests of techniques to work around a mechanical problem that appeared late last year and suspended use of the rover's drill.

I like how much we've been learning about Mars lately.  Not too long ago we wondered if there was ever water on Mars.  Now we're pretty sure that there still is a lot of it there in the form of ice and even a little liquid in the soil.
