The story behind the rocket engine that powered NASA’s Curiosity rover

The story of how the NASA-built Curiosity rover got to where it is today is one of the most remarkable in history.

The story begins on March 3, 2012, when Curiosity landed on Mars in an epic and successful landing mission.

When NASA’s JPL team had finished building the rover’s first lander, the mission was about to go live.

They needed to know whether the rover would ever reach a target named Gale Crater, a region on Mars that contains some of the oldest and most spectacular structures on Earth.JPL engineers knew that Curiosity had already been to a nearby rock called Wawona, and that it was too large to be scooped up and landed by a lander.

Instead, they opted to build a rocket engine from the ground up to send the rover on its first mission.

They also designed a special parachute system to slow down the descent.

In an attempt to make the landing even easier, the JPL engineers wanted to send Curiosity to the same spot where they had landed the lander and then used the parachute system.

The idea of sending Curiosity to a different location would have been too risky, so they built a rocket that could be attached to the landing site and sent to the surface.

In the end, Curiosity had to do exactly what JPL had done before, and send a different spacecraft to the land it was supposed to land on.

This rocket engine is what NASA used to send Mars rover Curiosity to its destination.

The first flight of the Curiosity rover ended on July 4, 2014, and the rover was finally able to land safely.

As NASA engineers were about to release the rover to its new destination, they realized that they had forgotten to attach the parachute to the rocket.

The parachute worked, but the engine wasn’t quite ready for prime time.

A year later, the engines were being tested and tested again, and NASA engineers began thinking about the problems they would encounter on the ground.

To keep the rocket from going haywire, they had to use some of their new tools to reduce friction.

The company tasked with building these new engines was the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the Lockheed Martin Corp. The JPL has also been developing other rocket engines, including one that would be used to power NASA’s Mars rover.

The engines were built using a technique called high-pressure injection, in which an injection of helium is heated up to pressures of several times those that would normally be needed to ignite a jet engine.

The resulting mixture of helium and air is injected into the engine, causing it to explode, causing a powerful shockwave.

The pressure in the engine was so high that it caused a problem that had never before been encountered in rocket engine development.

The explosion was so powerful that it literally blew the engine out of the sky, damaging its fuel tanks and leaving it partially damaged.

In some cases, the jet engine would go out of control, explode and burn up on the surface of Mars.NASA engineers found that if they injected a small amount of helium into the rocket, they could cause it to ignite.

But they couldn’t inject enough helium to cause the shockwave to become enough to cause an explosion.JPGL engineers knew from experience that if it could be used on a larger rocket, the same problems could be avoided.

This was why they were determined to build rockets with a smaller amount of air.

At first, JPL and Lockheed Martin worked together to design a larger-size rocket that would have a very high pressure and high explosive yield.

They had no choice, as the smaller rocket would require more helium and more time to build.

But this smaller rocket was too heavy for Curiosity, and JPL wasn’t sure how much weight it would need.

It turned out to be less than the weight of the landing craft.

The bigger rocket was finally built, and was sent to NASA’s Jet Propulsed Research Program, which designed the rocket to launch on a rocket called the Delta 4 Heavy.

NASA also built two other rocket cores for Curiosity.

The rocket engine the JPGL built to launch Curiosity on its Mars landing mission is the Delta IV Heavy rocket, built by Lockheed Martin.

It was designed to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, but it was originally designed for use on NASA’s own Mars Exploration Rovers, which were also designed by JPL.

The Delta IV heavy rocket is one-third the weight and one-quarter the height of the Delta 5 rocket, which NASA used for the first flight.

The Delta 4 is also three times as powerful.

The engine itself weighs in at just over 13,000 pounds.

The engineers at JPL used these smaller rocket engines to make some of Curiosity’s more interesting discoveries.

The most famous of these discoveries was the discovery of carbon in the Martian atmosphere.

Cells in the atmosphere can form by a process called chemical vapor condensation, and
