APOD: Curiosity: Wheels on Mars (2013 Jun 03) Image Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech, MSSS, MAHLI http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130603.html Explanation: Could life ever have existed on Mars? To help find out, humanity landed the Curiosity rover on Mars last August. To make sure the car-sized explorer survived the interplanetary trip and dramatic landing intact, the above image and others was taken peering at, under, and around Curiosity. Pictured above in this unusual vista are three of Curiosity's six wheels, each measuring about half a meter across. In recent months, Curiosity has been exploring the surroundings of an area dubbed Yellowknife Bay. Analyses of data taken by Curiosity's cameras and onboard laboratories has provided strong new evidence that Mars could once have supported life. In the distance is part of the slope to the central peak inside Gale Crater that Curiosity is scheduled to attempt to climb -- Mt. Sharp. http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA16134 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130603 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0603

APOD: Four X-class Flares (2013 May 16) Image Credit: NASA, Solar Dynamics Observatory, GSFC http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130516.html Explanation: Swinging around the Sun's eastern limb on Monday, a group of sunspots labeled active region AR1748 has produced the first four X-class solar flares of 2013 in less than 48 hours. In time sequence clockwise from the top left, flashes from the four were captured in extreme ultraviolet images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Ranked according to their peak brightness in X-rays, X-class flares are the most powerful class and are frequently accompanied by coronal mass ejections (CMEs), massive clouds of high energy plasma launched into space. But CMEs from the first three flares were not Earth-directed, while one associated with the fourth flare may deliver a glancing blow to the Earth's magnetic field on May 18. Also causing temporary radio blackouts, AR1748 is likely not finished. Still forecast to have a significant chance of producing strong flares, the active region is rotating into more direct view across the Sun's nearside. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sunearth/news/News051513-ar1748.html Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130516 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0516
