In Pictures: What is so infinitely cool about Mars...
Big recent news from Mars came from NASA and its Curiosity which showed the first ever sample of powdered rock extracted by the rover's drill. The image was taken after the sample was transferred from the drill to the rover's scoop. In planned subsequent steps, the sample will be sieved, and portions of it delivered to the Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument and the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument.
