I can’t wait for the journey that started with one small step on the Moon to lead to boot prints on Mars.

It me.

@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: go.nasa.gov/2LRPo62  pic.twitter.com/6dQr478yW8

For those about to rock, I salute you.

For those who could use a little extra , check out these rocks I found over the weekend. Here are some pictures from the surface of Mars, just for you.

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 takes you, I hope it's an adventure. pic.twitter.com/pppmtaYbO4

PewPew Part II: Rock-zapping laser instrument SuperCam was recently installed on 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: go.nasa.gov/2XnBShc  pic.twitter.com/55b6VGwpjW

Hip-bot-hooray! Three cheers for @NASA's newest robot: .

On the search for the building blocks of life, it will fly to various locations on Titan, Saturn's largest moon, a place where methane rains from hazy skies. go.nasa.gov/2ZW0c6D  pic.twitter.com/7edxepeUio

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. 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. 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 team will continue to analyze the data before confirming results. pic.twitter.com/zSrONQHuc5

Meanwhile, back on

I’ve found the highest amounts of clay minerals ever during my mission and then snapped this selfie.

Did you know that I have a weather station? Watch now as @NASA talks about extreme weather all over the solar system, and how it helps our understanding of weather back on Earth. periscope.tv/NASA/1ynJORPrRNzG …

Oh, the places we’ll go!

Take a look at the parts of Mars I hope to explore soon. I hope my rover tracks may help lead the way for future humans on the Red Planet following their exploration at the Moon. go.nasa.gov/2WOl6DK  pic.twitter.com/xINS8DTk10

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. twitter.com/i/moments/11236139 …

This clay unit is so delicious, I went back for seconds. Planning science analysis for dessert. 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. go.nasa.gov/2DoKfgH  pic.twitter.com/x2PWezTPdE

Grind & Stack

Back at @NASAJPL, the back shell, descent stage, test rover and heat shield have been assembled and stacked for testing as the mission's July 2020 launch date inches closer. go.nasa.gov/2GlN9DG  pic.twitter.com/JWDjoPhBJb

Did I do that?

This 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. 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. go.nasa.gov/2uUXH7r  pic.twitter.com/IqE4h4OXTR
