Mars Science Laboratory's rover, Curiosity, landed successfully on Mars on August 6, 2012, and has since been exploring Gale crater. This landing site has proven highly promising for understanding the climate of Mars some 3.7 billion years ago and parts of its following history. The Radiation Assessment Detector, RAD, characterizes the complex spectrum of surface radiation and thus serves to prepare for future human exploration. In my talk I will report on selected first results from MSL and RAD.
