Radio-Canada.ca and La Voix de l'Est (cyberpresse.ca) both recently published articles about NASA's new "Curiosity" Mars rover, which contains image sensors made by Teledyne DALSA's Semiconductor & MEMS Foundry in Bromont, Quebec, for NASA's JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory).
NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission will launch in November or December of this year, delivering Curiosity to the surface of Mars in August 2012. The rover will capture new images, perform new scientific tests, and continue the search for signs of life on the red planet.
