I can’t wait for the journey that started with one small step on the Moon to lead to boot prints on Mars.
@HiRISE on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter snapped this pic of moi, rollin’ around the intriguing rocks of Gale Crater's clay-bearing unit. You can see my head on the left: https://go.nasa.gov/2LRPo62 pic.twitter.com/6dQr478yW8
Got any plans for the holiday weekend?
I'm going for a drive and will check out some layered bedrock with my laser, then I'll take a timeout to inspect my wheels and just observe this gorgeous crater.
Wherever the #4thofJuly takes you, I hope it's an adventure. pic.twitter.com/pppmtaYbO4
PewPew Part II: Rock-zapping laser instrument SuperCam was recently installed on #Mars2020 in a clean room at @NASAJPL.
Just like I use ChemCam to examine rocks from a distance, it will ID chemical and mineral composition from more than 20 ft (6 m) away: http://go.nasa.gov/2XnBShc pic.twitter.com/55b6VGwpjW
The game is afoot.
I'm continuing to investigate the Martian methane mystery. A follow-on investigation shows that this past week's methane levels have sharply decreased. http://go.nasa.gov/2ZC0xvc pic.twitter.com/4w7aVRa2Hk
Something in the air tonight
I detected the largest amount of methane ever during my mission: ~21 parts per billion by volume. While microbial life can be a source of methane on Earth, methane can also be made by interaction between rocks and water. https://go.nasa.gov/2ZC0xvc pic.twitter.com/uk2mjV7OeE
While increased methane levels measured by @MarsCuriosity are exciting, as possible indicators for life, it’s important to remember this is an early science result. To maintain scientific integrity, the #science team will continue to analyze the data before confirming results. pic.twitter.com/zSrONQHuc5

InSight takes pics
And I do, too
Mars is red
But its sunsets are blue
We bots have been imaging sunrise and sunsets on Mars since the '70s. Check out this moment to see shots from Viking, Pathfinder, Spirit, Opportunity, @NASAInSight and me. https://twitter.com/i/moments/1123613987214467072 …
This clay unit is so delicious, I went back for seconds. Planning science analysis for dessert. https://go.nasa.gov/2DxWB65 pic.twitter.com/wKVoAbAFei
Stop what you're doin'. I'm about to ruin the image and the style that you're used to: @NASAInSight detected what is likely a marsquake.
Seismic sound laid down by the underground can be heard here between Martian wind and vibrations from InSight's arm. http://go.nasa.gov/2DoKfgH pic.twitter.com/x2PWezTPdE
Did I do that?
This #Mars rock was so soft, I didn't need to use percussion, making it the first sample obtained with drill rotation alone. This gif of "Aberlady" shows that it and surrounding rocks appear to have moved when the bit was retracted. https://go.nasa.gov/2VLvHi4 pic.twitter.com/jrqwr2MT9p
It's not a hot doughnut or the Eye of Sauron.
This is the first image ever of a black hole.
Supermassive congratulations to the whole @ehtelescope team. What can be accomplished by people and telescopes around the world working together is truly awesome. https://go.nasa.gov/2uUXH7r pic.twitter.com/IqE4h4OXTR
