Last update over a year ago... Curiosity is still roving and is close to 14 miles traveled...

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Crazy to think that a bit over a year from now, Curiosity's going to have a sibling on the surface with them. Looking forward to the launch of Perseverance next month.

Cool article on preparations of the rover for launch. Great explanation of the soil sampling system...
