NASA has just shown a photo of Mars showing the tires of the Curiosity rover, sent to Mars approx. 9 years ago. As you can see in the photo above, one of the recent photos of the Curiosity rover, received by NASA, the rover tires have holes in them. These tires are very different from what they looked like 9 years ago when they were new and beautiful. 

However, these small problems do not affect the rover's movement or exploration of Mars. The photo above was taken by Curiosity on January 9, 2022 at 05:25:34.000Z and recently received by NASA. But it's not really Curiosity's latest photo, the rover sends dozens of photos to NASA every day. But in any case, it is probably one of the most recent images that shows Curiosity in January of this year. 

Curiosity has a mission to explore everything possible on Mars, but most of it focuses on the geology of the planet, rock analysis and many other topics on Curiosity exploring Mars. It has been there for about 9 years, reaching the surface at 6 August 2012, 05:17 UTC. So far it has explore about 27 kilometers on the surface of Mars (approx. less than 17 miles).
