Curiosity Rover Gets Software Update

NASA has applied the first major update to the software running on board the Curiosity Rover that landed earlier this month. The new software update was applied over the weekend to make the mobile laboratory more suited to a life on the Martian surface. The older software Curiosity had on board gave it basic navigation capability, but not enough functionality for the Rover to determine whether Mars was habitable at some point.

The new software upgrades Curiosity's image processing capabilities and gives curiosity the ability to avoid obstacles as it rolls around the surface of Mars. The update also enables the Rover to use the drill and scoop at the end of its long arm.
