  Rock 'Tintina' Exposes 'Yellowknife Bay' Vein Material
     
Rock 'Tintina' Exposes 'Yellowknife Bay' Vein Material
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This raw image of "Tintina," a broken rock fragment in a rover wheel track, was taken by Curiosity's Mast Camera (Mastcam). When Curiosity drove over Tintina, the rock broke apart and exposed a fresh, bright white surface that may be the same as similarly bright material filling pale veins in the nearby bedrock of the "Yellowknife Bay" area.
