NASA MARS ROVER BEGINS DRIVING AT BRADBURY LANDING: NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has begun driving from its landing site, which scientists announced on August 22 they have named for the late author Ray Bradbury. Making its first movement on the Martian surface, Curiosity’s drive combined forward, turn and reverse segments. This placed the rover roughly 20 feet (6 meters) from the spot where it landed 16 days ago. Curiosity will spend several more days of working beside Bradbury Landing, performing instrument checks and studying the surroundings, before embarking toward its first driving destination approximately 1,300 feet (400 meters) to the east-southeast.
