Curiosity: Higher levels ahead

1822-navcamSol 1822, September 21, 2017. Mission controllers have driven Curiosity about 40 meters (82 feet) drive to the south-southeast. As the Navcam looks ahead, upper surface of Vera Rubin Ridge is revealing stepped layers not far away. These are visible in overhead images from HiRISE, but now they are visible from ground level and will become factors in the rover’s operation plans. Click image to enlarge it.
