The landing of the rover of Martian soil has been highly anticipated.
One company that wanted to join the Mars Curiosity Rover excitement was Angry Birds' Finnish game maker Rovio Entertainment Ltd., which released an Angry Birds teaser for its new Mars edition.
A 30-second trailer was released just days before the Mars Curiosity Rover landed.
As of now the Mars Rover has only sent back black and white photos, but the rover "tweeted" that there would be larger, colorful pictures to follow.
"FYI, I aim to send bigger, color pictures from Mars later this week once I've got my head up & Mastcam active #MSL," the rover said.
If you would like to see the "bigger, color pictures," follow the Curiosity Rover on Twitter @MarsCuriosity where more photos will probably be posted.
The pictures are being taken by the one-ton rover, about the size of an SUV, using "fisheye" Hazard Avoidance Cameras, NASA said.
Even though there was some dust kicked up when the rover landed, the pictures came out relatively clear.
John Grotzinger, project manager of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, spoke of the image that was sent back to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
"Curiosity's landing site is beginning to come into focus," Grotzinger said. "In the image, we are looking to the northwest. What you see on the horizon is the rim of Gale Crater. In the foreground, you can see a gravel field. The question is, where does this gravel come from? It is the first of what will be many scientific questions to come from our new home on Mars."
More news about the Mars Curiosity Rover will be broadcast tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.
