NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover will be able to drive faster, thanks to the new software update that was installed on the robot. The upgrade was installed between April 3 and April 7, causing the robot to temporarily pause its science and imaging operations. The same upgrade will also help reduce wear and tear on the rover's wheels. In total, 180 changes were implemented.
