NASA's Curiosity rover has successfully drilled its first rock on Mars, officials at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced over the weekend. The drill's use is a Martian landmark -- the first time scientists have drilled into the surface. It's a key moment for for the Mars Science Laboratory mission as well, marking a coming of age of sorts for the rover. Since landing on the Red Planet on Aug. 5, Curiosity has tested each of its instruments, from its many cameras to its laser-zapping instrument called ChemCam, and the drill's use is the grand finale of the show.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has already met its mission goals, discovering that parts of the Red Planet could have been friendly to microbial life. But not one to rest on its scientific laurels, the robot has drilled a second sample of rock to back up the rover's ground-breaking findings. The Mars Science Laboratory rover drilled a 0.6-inch-wide and 2.6-inch-deep hole into a rock named Cumberland, which sits about nine feet west of John Klein, the first rock sampled back in March.

After a four-week spring break, NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has set its sights on the next drill target: Cumberland, a rock lying about 9 feet away from where the rover first broke ground in Yellowknife Bay. The new target will be a greater challenge than the last, with more bumpy rock containing more erosion-resistant, mineral-rich concretions that formed when water once soaked the stone.  Mission scientists wanted to play it safe for the...

The dry lake runways at Edwards Air Force Base, famous as the landing ground of the space shuttles, are cracking and sinking, apparently because the Antelope Valley's growing population is sucking ground water from beneath them, federal officials reported Thursday.

Hydrogen. Carbon. Oxygen. Nitrogen. Sulfur. Phosphorus. These elements account for more than 96% of the stuff life on Earth is made from - and all six have been found in a rock sample on Mars. NASA scientists said Tuesday that the Curiosity rover discovered these basic building blocks of life in the very first rock it has drilled from beneath the Martian surface - along with signs that the Red Planet was once capable of hosting primitive microbes. "It definitely has all the indications of being a habitable environment at one point in time," Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program, said at a news conference in Washington.
