♬ Happy Birthday Curiosity ♬

As the 5th anniversary of Curiosity's monumental landing rolls around, it's especially sentimental. On this day, the lonely rover performs a special task: it sings ♬ Happy Birthday ♬ to itself all alone. Adorable, scientifically impressive, or just... a little sad?

Happy Birthday to the Mars rover! On August 5, 2012, NASA's Curiosity rover touched down on Mars. Many celebrate this on August 6 because when it landed at 10:32 p.m. PT, most of the world was a day ahead. However, NASA celebrates on August 5.


Curiosity takes an OUTSTANDING Panoramic Photo

On January 24, 2017, the Opportunity rover celebrates her 13 years on Mars. On Earth, she's officially a teenager and has been behaving like one.
