🎧 Currently listening to... @NASAJPL@twitter.com's On A Mission podcast - Season 4, Episode 1: Driven to Mars

Feeling nostalgic about how far we've come and inspired by how much possibility is still ahead.

Also, happy ! jpl.nasa.gov/podcasts/on-a-mis

You can’t make a science omelet without breaking a few…rocks? (Okay, so maybe metaphors aren’t my strong suit.) Seems my abrasion tool was a bit much for this one rock, but I’ve tried another one nearby with better luck. Soon, more !

After a couple weeks of driving, I’m back at “Enchanted Lake,” scoping out my next potential spot for . What do these rocks have to say about the earliest history of the lake that used to be here? Let’s find out.

In , I’m building a real science treasure chest, and my latest samples may be the most valuable yet. Some have organic molecules – but from ancient biology, or another process? Sending them back to Earth could help us figure it out.

🔴 Dive into the most detailed image ever taken on Mars.

Take a guided tour with one of my team members and check out the ancient river delta where I’ve been and doing science.

I came to the ancient lakebed of Jezero Crater expecting lots of sedimentary rocks. I see them now at the old river delta, but the crater floor was a surprise: lots of volcanic rocks. 🪨

Now my science team’s sharing some of what they’ve pieced together: go.nasa.gov/3wvSHpL

Been checking on some small debris in my drill system. I’m designed for a dirty environment, but it doesn't hurt to be careful. Thankfully it looks like I’ll be rolling on soon, headed for this spot my team calls “Enchanted Lake.”

Ten years ago today, Curiosity braved a landing so harrowing it seemed almost crazy. I wouldn’t be here without that legacy. Happy 10th to the mighty @MarsCuriosity@twitter.com and her mission team, many of whom I’m lucky to work with today.

A decade on Mars: go.nasa.gov/3w66y6j t.co/1hOXLSMiVq

Call them the “dusty dozen.” I’ve now got 12 rock core samples on board, collected while at these different sites around Jezero Crater. Learn more about all my samples, and keep track of the ones still to come:

Exciting news: Not only did I recently grab a new rock core (#11), but plans are coming together to bring these samples back to Earth. A new group of robots (including next-gen helicopters!) could join me for an unprecedented team-up.

Does your name start with L? Congratulations – your initial is now officially the first to be laser-engraved on a rock on Mars!

To what do you owe this honor? 😉 One of my scientists explains: go.nasa.gov/3v61BcO

Big day for space science! From grand telescope views that , to extreme closeups of , with rock cores barely the size of a pinky finger. I’ve now collected my 10th rock sample, seen here in the late afternoon Martian sun.

I’m a geologist, meteorologist, photographer, etc. Now I can add “location scout” to the list. I’ve been scoping out spots where Mars Sample Return spacecraft could set up operations – including the first launchpad on another planet.

Today’s the last day to meet my team at @ClarkPlanet@twitter.com in . But there’s still time to catch my exhibit: full-scale models of me and the Ingenuity will be there until Nov. 6!

Latest stop on the : ’s @ClarkPlanet@twitter.com. Visit models of me and the and learn from members of my mission team today through this weekend!

Rock sample #9 is in the bag! (Well, in the tube, anyway.)

My team has waited years to get up close to this river delta and see what it might say about past life on Mars. This sample may well get a one-way ticket back to Earth in the future!

Layer upon layer of rock, like pages in a Martian history book, waiting to be read. The right samples from this area could give us insights like we’ve never seen. I’m getting out my coring drill.
