An attempted drive NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Feb. 15, 2005 did not gain any ground toward nearby 'Larry's Lookout' because of slippage that churned the soil on the slope. 3-D glasses are necessary to view this image.

Spirit's View on Sol 399 (3-D)

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its navigation camera to capture this view during the rover's 399th martian day, or sol, (Feb. 15, 2005). An attempted drive on that sol did not gain any ground toward nearby "Larry's Lookout" because of slippage that churned the soil on the slope. Spirit used its alpha particle X-ray spectrometer to examine the churned soil. This view is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction.
