Target 'Wernecke' After Brushing by Curiosity
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: The gray area in the center of this image is where the Dust Removal Tool on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity brushed a rock target called "Wernecke." The brushing revealed dark nodules and white veins crisscrossing the light gray rock. The brushed area is about 2.5 inches (6 centimeters) across.
