Kewl Ka!

Liked this bit too:

The Mars Curiosity Rover had a warmer day on Mars yesterday than most Canadians and Americans in the northern U.S.

"It will be colder than @MarsCuriosity's location in Gale Crater throughout much [of] the northern U.S. and Canada today," a tweet from Mars Weather, an account with updates from a weather instrument on board the rover, read Thursday.

On Thursday, Mars reached a high of –8 C at the Gale Crater.

While some 3.5 billion years ago Mars may have had a similar climate to Earth, the planet is now very cold, NASA says. In the summer, the Curiosity Rover could experience a high of 20 C if located near Mars's equator, or a low of –153 C at either of its poles.

But, that didn't stop the Gale Crater from being cozier than most of Canada on Thursday.
