The left-side Pancam looks down and examines the Mayfield target area on Murray Ridge, in a false-color composite image made by Holger Isenberg using filtered Pancam frames. (More about Opportunity at Murray Ridge’s Pillinger Point.) Opportunity raw images, its latest … Continue reading
With its solar panels their cleanest in years, NASA’s decade-old Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is inspecting a section of crater-rim ridgeline chosen as a priority target due to evidence of a water-related mineral. Orbital observations of the site by another … Continue reading
The summit of Cape Tribulation, the next rim segment to the south, rises in the distance behind the local summit of Murray Ridge in this left-side Navcam image. Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, and a location map.
Angular outcrops with perhaps different rock types appear plentiful on Murray Ridge. Fragments of broken rock, large and small, are the natural result of the ridge being the uplifted rim of Endeavour, an ancient impact crater. (Navcam image.) Opportunity raw … Continue reading
Looking southeast with the Pancam at Pillinger Point on Murray Ridge, in a false-color image constructed by Holger Isenberg using filtered Pancam images. Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, and a location map.
Exploring aluminum-rich clays along Murray Ridge. Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, and a location map.
Navcam looks back as Opportunity drives south-southwest along the wind-swept crest of Murray Ridge. The general area has exposures of aluminum clays plus veins of sulfates that precipitated in fractures. Opportunity raw images, its latest … Continue reading
