While the rover itself has technically been in service for far longer than a year, its Mars visit has now lasted one full Martian cycle. That’s a whole cycle around the sun for Mars, also known as a Martian year. To celebrate, the NASA Mars Curiosity rover stretched one of its arms out to take a lovely selfie. In Earth days, the Curiosity mission has lasted over two years. That’s 687 Earth days and far more than that if you count the time it took for the rover to arrive on the planet. Click or tap the thumbnail above to access a near-full-sized version of the photo taken on the Mars birthday of the Curiosity rover. The full-sized image can be found at NASA. Below you’ll see Curiosity mission Rover Driver Matt Heverly and Deputy Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada speaking about the future of the project. This video is being delivered on the Mars birthday of the project and serves to deliver mission goals and accomplishments as well. Curiosity has accomplished one mission - discovering proof that life could possibly have existed on Mars at some point or another. While this life would have been microbial - and no longer exists there today - a lake bed was found with proof of the previous existence of water. The map above shows how far the Curiosity rover has gone since it arrived at Bradbury Landing in 2012. Have a peek at a collection of Mars Curiosity moments in the timeline below to see where this adventure has taken us over the past year.

Commercial Drones On The Horizon Find out why drones will soon begin taking on much larger roles for businesses and some individual consumers.

Register >Not too long ago, when most people heard the word “drones,” they thought of unmanned military aircraft engaged in highly controversial clandestine operations. But when Jeff Bezos announced that Amazon was testing the idea of delivering packages via drones, he made drones with popular commercial application suddenly seem like a viable proposition. While drones are unlikely to become a part of our daily lives in the immediate future, they will soon begin taking on much larger roles for businesses and some individual consumers, from delivering groceries to revolutionizing private security, to changing the way farmers manage their crops — perhaps even aerial advertising. We estimate that 12% of an estimated $98 billion in cumulative global spending on aerial drones over the next decade will be for commercial purposes . In a recent report from BI Intelligence , we size the commercial and military drone market to estimate how big the drone industry could become, and which industries are most likely to see drones become part of their business model in the next few years. We also look at what components industries, like GPS and sensors manufacturers, will be working to become drone-ready. And we assess how drone development will proceed in light of stiff safety and privacy concerns and regulatory hurdles.
