NASAs Curiosity Mars Rover Explores Mount Sharp And Its Expansive Martian Sands

NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover sent footage of its exploration mission to the 8-kilometre-high Mount Sharp revealing a varied landscape covered in huge boulders, jagged terrain and rolling fields of black martian sand. The Curiosity rover is into its 9th year on the red planet and is currently exploring Mount Sharp in the 154-kilometre (96 miles) wide basin of the Gale Crater. The images sent back to NASA were captured by the Rover’s mast camera on July 3, 2021. NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover finds a changing landscape. (NASA, JPL-Caltech, MSSS/Newsflash) Abigail
