Opportunity's View Climbing 'Murray Ridge'

This image shows the lower reaches of "Murray Ridge," on the rim of Endeavour Crater, Mars, as viewed by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity. The individual images that were used to create it were acquired on sol 3466 of Opportunity's mission (Oct. 24, 2013) using the rover's navigation camera (Navcam).

The ridge is part of the rim of Endeavour Crater and has been identified by Opportunity's science team as an important site for scientific exploration. The ridge is informally named to honor the late Bruce Murray, who made fundamental advances in Mars science and who led NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory through a period of great challenge and achievement.
