Curiosity's First Three Bites Into Martian Ground
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: Three bite marks left in the Martian ground by the scoop on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity are visible in this image taken by the rover's right Navigation Camera during the mission's 69th Martian day, or sol (October 15, 2012). The third scoopful, collected on that sol, left the bite or pit farthest to the right.
