  Curiosity's Drill in Place for Load Testing Before Drilling

Curiosity's Drill in Place for Load Testing Before Drilling
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: The percussion drill in the turret of tools at the end of the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has been positioned in contact with the rock surface in this image from the rover's front Hazard-Avoidance Camera (Hazcam). The drill was positioned for pre-load testing, and the Hazcam recorded this image during the 170th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (January 27, 2013).
