NASA's Curiosity Drives On After Crossing Martian Dune

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is continuing its traverse toward enticing science destinations after climbing over a dune spanning a gap in a ridge.

The rover covered 135 feet (41.1 meters) on Feb. 9, in its first drive since the 23-foot (7-meter) crossing of the dune on Feb. 6. That put Curiosity's total odometry since its August 2012 landing at 3.09 miles (4.97 kilometers).

In this image, we see the saddle between two valleys named Dingo Gap—in Gale Crater—where the rover Curiosity just traversed. (Audio by Tre Gibbs. Enhanced color images are 1 km across.)
