Curiosity looks for life on Mars – level 1

Curiosity is a small car which is on Mars. It went to Mars six months ago. It took some new materials from the deeper parts of Mars. The material can give us information if there was life on Mars.

It wasn’t done before on any other planet in our solar system. The material was taken from a hole which was 1.6 centimetres wide and 6.4 centimetres deep. The material will go to laboratories which are in Curiosity.

The car will continue looking for places where people could see life.

Interesting words: done (made), solar (sun).
