Curiosity rover is going to test a laser ray by zapping rocks in Mars
US space agency Nasa's Curiosity rover is to carry out its first laser target practice by zapping a Martian rock.

Scientists have chosen a rock 10 feet away from the six-wheeled explorer's landing site, where it will flex its robotic arm and take aim.

It is one of 10 tools Curiosity will use to break rocks and scoop up soil, exploring whether the planet's environment might once have supported life in the form of microscopic organisms.

The one million dollar question is:

Why NASA put a laser gun in a rover that's supposed to pick up soil samples and take pictures, in first place???

wtf bump damned

And before the shills claim that the laser is meant to help blasting rocks for samples, the other two rovers did the same work without lasers.

I can no longer stand NASA bullshit! A 2-billion-dollar robot in another planet for taking pictures and picking soil samples, the same thing done by the other two robots???
