Thanks for following along! View the latest Curiosity stories here.
[11:30 a.m.] NASA has released a photo showing Curiosity landing via a supersonic parachute.
[10:00 a.m.] Curiosity will take its first stroll on the Red Planet in about a couple of weeks, says Watkins. It will only move 1 or 2 meters.
[9:48 a.m.] Watkins says Curiosity's instruments appear to be healthy, but it will take weeks to check out everything.
[9:43 a.m.] Watkins: "I think we all believed it would land successfully, but we were worried.”
[9:24 a.m.] JPL project scientist John Grotzinger thinks one of the photographs shows an outline of Mt. Sharp, a mountain in the Gale Crater.
[9:18 a.m.] The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter snapped a photo of the supersonic parachute opening up as the spacecraft landed Sunday.
[9:12 a.m.] JPL's Miguel San Martin says the rover landed on Gale Crater, around 2 km east of the landing site.
[9:10 a.m.] Watkins says the rover landed on flat ground.
“We’re at a very slight tilt," he says "The front is done by 3 degrees.”
He says the rover is in normal mode, not safe mode, showing that it is healthy.
[8:55 a.m. Aug. 6] Press conference starting soon, with comments from Mike Watkins, Miguel San Martin, Sarah Milkovich and John Grotzinger.
[1:00 a.m.] JPL now has three photos of the rover Curiosity's landing on Mars.
Read the full story here. We'll return after 9 a.m. Monday for an update from JPL.
[12:18 a.m.] A press conference with a few of the leaders on the MSL mission just finished up. Another update and possibly more images from Curiosity to come.
[12:11 a.m.] JPL scientist John Grotzinger says the surface team will spend weeks checking out the rover before it moves. "The mission is about patience."
[11:56 p.m.] By Monday morning, JPL should have a better idea of where Curiosity landed.
