Mars Rover Curiosity

An Inside Account from Curiosity’s Chief Engineer


Greetings. Bill and I welcome you to our site for our book that details some of the many stories behind the creation of Curiosity Rover. Here you will find high resolution (and generally color) images of the figures in the book.

I have also compiled links to some of the material we reference in the book.
