  Rock 'Et-Then' Near Curiosity, Sol 82

Rock 'Et-Then' Near Curiosity, Sol 82
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: The Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on the arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took this image of a rock called "Et-Then" during the mission's 82nd sol, or Martian day (October 29, 2012.) The rock's informal name comes from the name of an island in Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories, Canada. MAHLI viewed the rock from a distance of about 15.8 inches (40 centimeters).
