Caption: Curiosity rover on Mars. Colour-enhanced satellite image of NASA's Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars. This rover, part of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission, landed in the Gale Crater on 6 August 2012. The rover is within the blue patch at lower left, with the colour enhancement showing the colour variations near the rover caused by the blast impact patterns from landing. Image obtained in August 2012 by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite. North is at top. Mount Sharp, one of the rover's science objectives, is out of frame towards lower right.
