The Sun stops the communications between Earth and the Mars rover Curiosity


The Curiosity rover begins its four week break today as the Sun moves between Mars and the Earth blocking communications between scientists and the robot.
For most of April, +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory  engineers from NASA and academics from the University of Leicester in UK will be unable to send commands to the rover due to solar interference from the Sun.



Be back soon Curiosity, we miss you !
