Curiosity is back in active mode

    The Curiosity rover, which exceeds the expectations of its creators , returned to active mode, after two days spent in safe mode. Now the rover is still controlled by computer B, after the A-computer is in an inoperative (temporary) state. The reason for the failure is still being investigated.

    The problem itself is being solved by NASA engineers, who are hoping to bring Computer-A to working mode soon. It is necessary to conduct several checks from a working computer, after which for about a month commands to manage its software will not be sent to the rover. As you know, soon the Sun will rise between Earth and Mars, so NASA does not want to take risks, sending teams that may be broken due to the influence of radiation from the star.
