  Drill Bit Tip on Mars Rover Curiosity, Head-on View

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

Uploader comment: This head-on view shows the tip of the drill bit on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. The view merges two exposures taken by the remote micro-imager in the rover's Chemistry and Camera instrument at different focus settings during the 172nd Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (January 29, 2012).
