Curiosity Mars Rover Approaches 'Cooperstown'

The low ridge that appears as a dark band below the horizon in the center of this scene is a Martian outcrop called "Cooperstown," a possible site for contact inspection with tools on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity.

Au 43ème jour de sa mission sur Mars (19 septembre 2012), Curiosity se trouve environ à mi-chemin de Glenelg. Il a parcouru 290 mètres depuis son départ de Bradbury Landing, son site d'atterrissage, le 22 août 2012. Au sol 43, il s'est approché du rocher pyramidal  Jake Matijevic  pour mener sa première analyse à l'aide de l'instrument APXS.

This map shows where NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has driven since landing at a site subsequently named "Bradbury Landing," and traveling to an overlook position near beside "Point Lake," in drives totaling feet meters).

Curiosity Mars Rover Approaches 'Dingo Gap,' Mastcam View Date: 28 Jan 2014

NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover is back in action, examining a valley where at least two types of bedrock meet for clues about changes in ancient environmental conditions recorded by the rock. On Mars as on Earth, each layer of a sedimentary rock tells a story about the environment in which it was formed and modified. More: http://go.nasa.gov/1LVr0qW #NASABeyond

Plusieurs vues prises par la caméra-microscope MAHLI (Mars Hand Lens Imager) (voir en images le tests de cette caméra) sur le rocher Jake Matijevic le 23 septembre 2012 (sol 47). La surface du rocher apparaît grise avec des reflets, et ses aspérités sont remplies de fine poussière martienne. La barre d'échelle blanche en bas à droite représente 4 centimètres de long. Jake Matijevic est le premier rocher analysé par MAHLI !
