Mars Curiosity in webcomics

The Mars rover Curiosity made quite a splash when it successfully landed on Mars through its complicated means of landing. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory describes Curiosity as roughly the size of a VW bug and dwarfs the other rovers previously sent out. It also has quite a latency and bandwidth limitation to deal with when communicating with the Rover.

The Curiosity landed successfully and responded to “Pics or it didn’t happen” with a picture of its shadow being cast where it landed.

Along with making a splash in the news, Mars Curiosity appeared in a number of webcomics this week. Check them out below:
