Curiosity: Cracked rock

1555-rmiSol 1555, December 20, 2016. The Remote Micro-Imager  took aim at a rock target showing a tile-like pattern of cracks that appear to be partly filled with minerals, likely deposited by water. The right side of the four-frame composite shows a hollowed-out area, possibly due to differential erosion. Click image to enlarge.
