  Sand Filtered through Curiosity's Sieve

Sand Filtered through Curiosity's Sieve
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This image shows fine sand from Mars that was filtered by NASA's Curiosity rover as part of its first "decontamination" exercise. These particles passed through a sample-processing sieve that is porous only to particles less than 0.006 inches (150 microns) across.
