Sweeping the Dust Away
NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit brushed the dust away from a rock target on an outcrop dubbed "Clovis" prior to grinding a hole and conducting mineral studies. This view is a mosaic combining four frames that Spirit took with its microscopic imager on martian sol 214 (Aug. 9, 2004).
