reader Curiosity

CuriosityL; Adam Steltzner the Elvis like Entry Descent and Landing Lead; Al Chen chief of flight dynamics and the voice of JPL during Curiosity’s treacherous landing; and many othersAnd of course Pyle describes the adventures of the Curiosity rover itself from landing through the first samples drilling and discovering a habitable past on the planet to reaching the ultimate target Mount Sharp in the center of Gale Crater  America is once again at the forefront of a new space age and Curiosity is just the beginning of many exciting new discoveries to co this book like any other science text is very Dense in that it's literally just bombarding you with information i did like it overall for the most part but there were simply just some parts in the narration that i didn't care for
