It’s the one-year anniversary of the Curiosity Rover landing on the surface of Mars. That’s one Earth year, by the way. Watch the JPL present a special program to celebrate, and ask questions via Twitter with the hashtag #AskNASA. There’s programming all day, and you can watch it live right here!

- This billion-pixel panorama of Mars is beautiful
- No. The Curiosity rover did not photograph a rat on Mars
