Welcome to Yellowknife, Mars


On August 5th, 2012, NASA’s Mars Rover named Curiosity touched down on the Red Planet and it was decided to name the landing spot Yellowknife after the northern town’s relationship with the Acasta Gneiss also known as the Rock of Ages. The Acasta Gniess has been dated using U-Pb isotopes which revealed an approximate maximum age of 4.03 billion years old.
