Caption: Curiosity's Remote Sensing Mast. This mast, part of NASA's Curiosity rover, consists of the ChemCam, two Mast cameras and four Navigation cameras. This image was obtained on 7 September 2012 (Sol 32) by the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on the rover's robotic arm. Here, MAHLI's dust cover is closed, allowing those operating the rover to inspect the dust cover itself and ensure it can be opened safely. The angle of the frame reflects the position of the MAHLI camera on the arm when the image was taken. Curiosity, the rover for the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission, landed in the Gale Crater on Mars on 6 August 2012.
