Snap from our favourite Martian - It has been just over a year since Nasa's Curiosity rover made its historic landing on the Red Planet. In that time, the rover has explored its surroundings and beamed back spectacular images. During the first half of this year, Curiosity found evidence of a Martian environment with conditions favourable for microbial life. Photo: AP
