Opportunity Rover on 'Murray Ridge' Seen From Orbit
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught this view of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Feb. 14, 2014. The red arrow points to Opportunity at the center of the image. Blue arrows point to tracks left by the rover in October 2013.
Opportunity's Southward View of 'McClure-Beverlin Escarpment' on Mars
This view toward the south is a mosaic of images taken by Opportunity's Pancam on Dec. 25, 2013. The rover team plans to use Opportunity during 2014 to investigate rock layers exposed on the slope upward toward the McClure-Beverlin Escarpment.
The gold line on this image shows NASA's Opportunity's route from the landing site, in upper left, to the area it is investigating on the western rim of Endeavour Crater as of the rover's 10th anniversary on Mars, in Earth years.
This plot segregates various minerals examined by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity according to their different compositions; for example, those with more iron and magnesium oxides are located in the lower right corner.
Researchers used NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity to find a water-related mineral on the ground that had been detected from orbit, and found it in the dark veneer of rocks on the rim of Endeavour Crater.
Outcrop on 'Murray Ridge' Section of Martian Crater Rim (False Color)
This false color image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is of the outcrop on the 'Murray Ridge' portion of the rim of Endeavour Crater as the rover approached the 10th anniversary of its landing on Mars.
This image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity, shows the lower reaches of 'Murray Ridge,' informally named to honor the late Bruce Murray, who led NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory through a period of great challenge and achievement.
'Murray Ridge' on Rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars, False Color
This scene shows the 'Murray Ridge' portion of the western rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars, as seen by NASA's Opportunity rover. It is presented in false color to make some differences between materials easier to see.
This scene shows the 'Murray Ridge' portion of the western rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars as seen by NASA's rover Opportunity; this feature is called Murray Ridge in tribute to Bruce Murray (1931-2013), an influential advocate for planetary exploration.
Geological Boundary at the Edge of 'Solander Point'
NASA's Opportunity used the navigation camera (Navcam) on its mast to capture this southward facing scene along the eastern flank of 'Solander Point' during the 3,387 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Aug. 3, 2013).
Color View From Orbit Showing Opportunity in 'Botany Bay'
This image taken by the HiRISE camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, captures Opportunity traversing south (at the end of the white arrow) to new science targets and a winter haven at 'Solander Point,' another portion of the Endeavour rim.
NASA's Opportunity used its Pancam to record this view of the rise in the foreground, called 'Nobbys Head.' This view is centered toward the south-southeast, with Opportunity's next destination, 'Solander Point,' toward the right edge of the view.
