This frame is from sequence of views NASA's Curiosity Mars rover recorded of the sun setting at the close of the mission's 956th Martian day, or sol (April 15, 2015), from the rover's location in Gale Crater.
This map shows the route on lower Mount Sharp that NASA's Curiosity followed in April and early May 2015, in the context of the surrounding terrain. Numbers along the route identify the sol, or Martian day, on which it completed the drive.
This April 16, 2015, panorama from the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a detailed view toward two areas, 'Mount Shields' and 'Logan Pass,' on lower Mount Sharp, chosen for close-up inspection in subsequent weeks.
A sweeping panorama combining 33 telephoto images into one Martian vista presents details of several types of terrain visible on Mount Sharp from a location along the route of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover.
NASA's Curiosity Mars rover used its Navigation Camera (Navcam) to capture this scene toward the west just after completing a drive that took the mission's total driving distance past 10 kilometers (6.214 miles).
Curiosity View Ahead Through 'Artist's Drive' (Stereo)
This stereo view from the Navigation Camera (Navcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows the terrain ahead of the rover as it makes its way westward through a valley called "Artist's Drive." 3-D glasses are need to view this image.
The Rover Environmental Monitoring Station (REMS) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover includes temperature and humidity sensors mounted on the rover's mast. One of the REMS booms extends to the left from the mast in this view.
Night Close-up of Mineral Veins at 'Garden City,' Mars
This view from the Mars Hand Lens Imager on the arm of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is a close-up of a two-tone mineral vein at a site called 'Garden City' on lower Mount Sharp. It was taken during night, illuminated by LEDs, on March 25, 2015.
This frame from a sequence of images shows a blast zone where the sky crane from NASA's Curiosity rover mission hit the ground after setting the rover down in August 2012. The images are from HiRISE on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Hole at 'Telegraph Peak' Drilled by Mars Rover Curiosity
This hole, with a diameter slightly smaller than a U.S. dime, was drilled by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover into a rock target called 'Telegraph Peak.' The rock is located within the basal layer of Mount Sharp. The hole was drilled on Feb. 24, 2015.
This view NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover shows the rover's drill in position for a mini-drill test to assess whether a rock target called 'Mojave' is appropriate for full-depth drilling to collect a sample. It was taken on Jan. 13, 2015.
