“Thanksgiving isn’t so different on Mars. I had a long drive & plan to take photos. No pie, though,” the Curiosity team said via the rover’s official Twitter feed, @MarsCuriosity.

President Obama pardoned a turkey — and a spare — at a White House ceremony Wednesday.
Cobbler the turkey emerged victorious in nationwide poll against another turkey, Gobbler, in a twist to the annual tradition.
