Displayed in Richland School’s front lobby is the Curiosity Rover, a 1:1 replica (actual size) spacecraft, that was launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., Nov. 26, 2011, and arrived on Mars Aug. 6, 2012. The rover’s primary mission was to find out if Mars is, or was, suitable for life and to discover information about Mar’s environment.
