The Path into "Endurance"
This image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity panoramic camera shows the rover's 6-to-7-meter (20-to-23-foot) drive path into the crater called "Endurance," starting near the target called "Karatepe." The yellow line at the top illustrates the second part of the drive, in which the rover drives forward 2.4 meters (7.8 feet) into the crater before backing up to examine the soil and rock it just drove over. The drive began on sol 133 (June 8, 2004).
