Opportunity: Heavy traffic zone

5096-5100-pancamFCSols 5096-5100 (!), May 27-30, 2018. A 12-frame Pancam composite (false color by Holger Isenberg) shows the heavily trafficked ground to the northeast of the rover’s current position. As mission scientists wished to examine one outcrop or rock after another in this part of Perseverance Valley, Opportunity drove back and forth across the valley channel. (If it looks like a terrestrial ATV has been busy here, that’s basically what Opportunity is, plus instruments.)  Click the image to enlarge it (10 MB).
