At Edge of 'Yellowknife Bay,' Sol 130
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: In a shallow depression called "Yellowknife Bay," the NASA Mars rover Curiosity drove to an edge of the feature during the 130th Martian day, or sol, of the mission (December 17, 2012) and used its Navigation Camera to record this view of the ledge at the margin and a view across the "bay." NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The mission's Curiosity rover was designed, developed and assembled at JPL.
