LEGO Mindstorms Mars Curiosity


Curiosity is a robotic rover exploring Gale Crater on Mars as part of NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission.

It was launched from Cape Canaveral on November 26, 2011 and landed successfully on Mars on August 6, 2012, 05:17 UTC after a 563,000,000 km journey, only 2.4 km far from the designated landing point!

The rover’s goals include: investigation of the Martian climate and geology; assessment of whether the selected field site inside Gale Crater has ever offered environmental conditions favorable for microbial life, including investigation of the role of water; and planetary habitability studies in preparation for future human exploration.

Now do it with LEGO! :) You will just need 7 NXT Bricks, 13 NXT Motors and two Power Function Set, thousands of bricks and hundred of hours. But the result is this increible replica of the Mars Curiosity!
