Mars Science Laboratory (MSL)

August 1, 2014. MSL Release 6 includes new raw and derived data acquired on sols 450 through 583, along with revised versions of some previously released data.

August 7, 2014. Products from sols 450-583 have been added to the safed SAM EDR data set.

The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover, Curiosity, landed on Mars and began operations on August 6, 2012. On June 25, 2014, the rover marked one Mars year (687 Earth days) of operations on the surface.

Science data from Curiosity's suite of instruments is released by PDS three times a year.  See the complete release schedule below.
