Curiosity: Looking for a new drill site

2126-navcam-southSol 2126, July 30, 2018. Having struck out at two drill sites, Curiosity’s scientists are seeking a new one, sending the rover on a 68-meter (224-foot) drive westward along the ridge top.

The Navcam composite above shows the post-drive view toward the south, with part of Mt. Sharp dimly visible in the center. The image below shows the view north, with the Murray Buttes visible but the inner rim of Gale still hidden by miles of dusty atmosphere. Click either image (3.7 MB) to enlarge it.
