NASA di­ag­nos­ing prob­lem on Mars rover Cu­rios­ity

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

PASADENA | The Mars rover Cu­rios­ity has tem­po­rar­ily stopped sci­ence ob­ser­va­tions while NASA checks out an elec­tri­cal prob­lem.

The space agency said Wed­nes­day that the volt­age change was first dis­cov­ered Sun­day and engi­neers think it might be some kind of short.

The six-wheel, nu­clear-pow­ered rover halted work as a pre­cau­tion.

So far, there’s no sign that the prob­lem is re­lated to a com­puter re­boot ear­lier this month that put Cu­rios­ity in safe mode.

Cu­rios­ity landed in a Mar­tian crater in Au­gust 2012 and has spent the past sev­eral months driv­ing to­ward its ul­ti­mate desti­na­tion, Mount Sharp.

The mis­de­meanor charges of sim­ple as­sault and dis­or­derly con­duct were filed in ju­ve­nile court, Chief Ben­jamin Sut­cliffe of the South An­nville Town­ship Po­lice Depart­ment said. He de­clined to say how many peo­ple were charged or to re­lease other de­tails, in­clud­ing names, be­cause of the ages of those in­volved.

Video of the Sept. 6 game at An­nville-Cleona Sec­ondary School shows a Ham­burg player tear­ing the hel­met off an An­nville-Cleona player and hit­ting him with it at least twice.
