The Curiosity Rover began its 23-month exploration of Mars in August, and has been busying about capturing the minds of space buffs the world over ever since. Usually, the photos captured on the rover’s camera would be released by NASA to the world. Now, however, Curiosity (and, essentially, NASA) is keeping up with the times: it just checked in to location-centric social network Foursquare…from the Red Planet.
Sure, no one would be challenging its soon-to-be Mayor status anytime soon, but Foursquare is proud to be part of this collaboration, with a blog entry on its official blog announcing Curiosity’s check-in from another planet – which is the first ever, and only the second check-in from space.
