Source:  NASA/USGS

A US space agency has safely landed a robotic rover on Mars. The one-tonne vehicle, called Curiosity, has reportedly landed in the Gale Crater on August 6, 2012 at 06:32 BST. The rover will remain on the red planet for two years to look for evidence that would prove Mars may have supported life in the past.
