Curiosity's Wheels Are Falling Apart

There are holes in Curiosity wheels. There have always been holes — the rover landed with twelve holes deliberately machined in each wheel to aid in rover navigation. But there are new holes now: punctures, fissures, and ghastly tears. The short version of the story: wheel damage is a serious issue, but it does not presently limit the capability of the rover. http://gizmodo.com/curiositys-wheels-are-falling-apart-and-how-we-can-sol-1626826935 #tech
