NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover makes history again, scooping up material from the surface of Mars for the first time.
The video shows Curiosity vibrating the sandy substance it has collected.
This is done to discard any overfill, and to allow scientists on Earth to view some characteristics of the material.
Scientific instruments will soon analyze the substance in more detail.
