Ripples in The Soil

This is a three-dimensional stereo anaglyph of an image taken by the front navigation camera onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit, showing an interesting patch of rippled soil. Spirit took this image on sol 37 (Feb. 9, 2004) after completing the longest drive ever made by a rover on another planet - 21.2 meters (69.6 feet). On sol 38 scientists plan to investigate this interesting location with the microscopic imager and Moessbauer spectrometer on Spirit's instrument deployment device.
