  Veins and Nodules at 'Knorr' Target in 'Yellowknife Bay' of Gale Crater

Veins and Nodules at 'Knorr' Target in 'Yellowknife Bay' of Gale Crater
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: Light-toned nodules and veins are visible in this image from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity of a patch of sedimentary rock called "Knorr." The target is in the "Yellowknife Bay" area of Gale Crater, close to where Curiosity found evidence of an ancient environment favorable for microbial life. The rover's Mast Camera (Mastcam) recorded this raw image during the 133rd Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (December 20, 2012).
