Drill Bit Tip on Mars Rover Curiosity, Side View
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/LANL/CNES/IRAP/LPGNantes/CNRS

Uploader comment: The shape of the tip of the bit in the drill of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity is apparent in this view recorded by the remote micro-imager in the rover's Chemistry and Camera instrument during the 172nd Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (January 29, 2012). The bit is about 0.6 inch (1.6 centimeters) wide.
