NASA reveals Mars rover findings

US space agency's Curiosity rover has used its full array of instruments to analyse Martian soil for first time.

    Less than four months ago, the US space agency NASA's Curiosity rover landed on Mars.

    Since then, scientists have been testing the rover's instruments and taking samples of Martian soil, in order to analyse the compounds and send its data back here to Earth.

    They have just given their first full update on what they have discovered.
