NASA’s Curiosity rover reaches intriguing salty site after treacherous journey

After a perilous journey, NASA’s Curiosity rover has reached an area thought to have formed billions of years ago when the Red Planet’s water disappeared.

This area of ​​Mount Sharp, the Curiosity rover’s Martian playground, is rich in salty minerals that scientists say were left behind when streams and ponds dried up. As such, this region could hold tantalizing clues to how the Martian climate changed from Earth-like to the frozen, arid desert that Curiosity explores today.
