Your general level of curiosity
depends on how much you’ve
already learned. Studies show
people are more likely to be
curious of things they know a little
about than they are something
they know nothing about, or think
they know a lot about. Source

Just over 3 years ago (by planet Earth’s calendar) the Curiosity Mars Rover landed on the Martian surface. The rover has treated us to the most incredible and surreal surface images of the alien world. Here you can see the path of the rover’s wheels as it crosses over a dune.
The top image is recorded under Martian lighting conditions while the bottom features a white balanced version of the Martian surface if it was under the light of Earth’s sky. (Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
