NASA, Foursquare Unveil Rover-Themed Curiosity Explorer Badge


[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

NASA and Foursquare have teamed up to give us earthlings a Curiosity Explorer badge. We can earn this when we like NASA on Foursquare and check in at planetariums, science museums, and NASA visitor centers.

The launch of the badge follows the October check-in on Mars by NASA’s Curiosity rover, which marked the first check-in on another planet.

NASA has been on Foursquare since 2010 through a strategic partnership with the platform, launched with astronaut Doug Wheelock ‘s first-ever check-in from the International Space Station.

The partnership launched the now-expired NASA Explorer badge for Foursquare users, which encouraged them to explore NASA-related locations across the country. It also included the launch of a NASA Foursquare page, where the agency continues to provide official tips and information about the nation’s space program.
