  Preparatory Test of Drilling on Mars Generates Rock Powder

Preparatory Test of Drilling on Mars Generates Rock Powder
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: In an activity called the "mini drill test," NASA's Mars rover Curiosity used its drill to generate this ring of powdered rock for inspection in advance of the rover's first full drilling. Curiosity performed the mini drill test and used its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera to record this image of the resulting hole and cuttings during the 180th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (February 6, 2013).
