Curiosity Mars Rover on Vera Rubin Ridge

NASA’s Curiosity rover surveyed its surroundings on Aug. 9, 2018, producing a 360-degree panorama of its current location on Mars‘ Vera Rubin Ridge.

The panorama includes skies darkened by a fading global dust storm and a view from the Mast Camera of the rover itself, revealing a thin layer of dust on Curiosity’s deck.



In the foreground is the rover’s most recent drill target, named “Stoer” after a town in Scotland near where important discoveries about early life on Earth were made in lakebed sediments.
