  Opportunity's Heat Shield

Opportunity's Heat Shield
Image credit: NASA/JPL/Cornell

Uploader comment: This image from 2005 shows the remains of the heat shield from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, broken into two key pieces, the main piece on the left side and a broken-off flank piece near the middle of the image. The heat shield impact site is identified by the circle of red dust on the right side of the picture.
