Calbrate that

No-one was in any doubt that putting a car-sized rover on Mars was hard and that it took a lot of complicated engineering to do it. But this story shows just how complicated Curiosity is, even the tracks it tyres leaves help its mission. They are a visual cue and clue that helps work out how far it has gone.  Oh, and spell out JPL in Morse code.
