Foursquare Extends Reach - To Mars

Hands across the ocean just doesn't quite cover it - NASA and Foursquare have teamed up so that the Curiosity rover can "check in" as it trundles around the Martian surface - kind of a cool idea to make the Martian adventures seem more immediate and tangible to us social media types.
Especially enjoyable is the fact that the Rover’s Foursquare account not only includes different check-ins across Mars, but it also includes tips for those who may be interested in visiting Mars in future, just as it would for any other location. For those interested, Mars is “cold, dry and rocky,” and things to consider bringing should you visit include “extra moisturizer and sturdy shoes… plus oxygen for those of you who breathe.”
