NASA has teamed up with Foursquare to introduce Curiosity rover-themed badges. Users can earn these badges by checking into science-related destinations frequently.
Users must like NASA on Foursquare to earn the Curiosity Explorer badge, and check in at a NASA visitor center or other places categorized as a science museum or planetarium. The launch of the badge comes after the October check-in on Mars by NASA’s Curiosity rover, which was dubbed as the first check-in on another planet. Since landing on the planet in August, the Curiosity rover has been extensively promoted on social media, especially Twitter and Facebook.
