Since landing in Gale Crater two weeks ago, the actual six-wheel rover has been checking out its instruments including the actual laser. when its two-year mission, Curiosity was expected to point the actual laser at different rocks as it drives toward Mount Sharp, a 3-mile (5-kilometer)-high mountain rising from the actual crater floor.
