Caption: Curiosity rover's robotic arm. This is the turret of tools located at the end of NASA's Curiosity rover's robotic arm. The instrument at centre here is the camera called the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). Other instruments are at right and left. The Martian landscape is in the background. The image let researchers inspect MAHLI's dust cover and check its LED lights, one of which is on. This image was obtained by Curiosity's Mast Camera on 8 September 2012, during the rover's 32nd Martian day (sol). Curiosity, the rover for the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission, landed in the Gale Crater on Mars on 6 August 2012.
