The Curiosity rover celebrated its ten years birthday on August 5, 2022. The Mars Science Laboratory mission landed the size of a MINI Cooper Curiosity rover on Mars 10 years ago. In the past decade, Curiosity's first stop was at the Gale Crater to find water on Mars. After 3721 Sols on Mars, Curiosity is ready to drill at the Encanto site. The mission's goals are from the quest for life on Mars to preparing for Mars Human exploration. This talk is to share the history of the Mars Rover Curiosity, from the beginning of its launch to the twelve years of life on Mars.
