Mars Science Laboratory (MSL)

August 24, 2022. The MSL Mastcam Photometry bundle from Jeff Johnson is released.

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.
