Curiosity Rover Made a Foursquare Check-In from Mars

NASA made the first foursquare check-in from another planet this week when the Curiosity Rover checked-in using the foursquare mobile app. The Rover checked-in as it makes its way towards Mount Sharp, which stands about 3 miles tall.

NASA has been using foursquare to keep public interested in its space missions alive for a while. Previously, a NASA astronaut made the first foursquare check-in from the international space station. The picture NASA posted with the foursquare check-in from Mars shows the Curiosity Rover and its shadow on the surface of the red planet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
