Posted September 11, 2020 17:19:11With the Curiosity spacecraft orbiting Mars for the first time since it launched in August, NASA has announced some new photos of the rover from the Mastcam on its side.
The images were taken on September 7, and NASA announced that they were the first of several images of the interior of the Gale Crater, a crater on the surface of Mars.
The pictures show that the crater is about 4 kilometers across, with some parts of the crater measuring more than two meters in diameter.
The rover landed on the planet in August 2012.
The Curiosity mission is one of NASA’s major scientific accomplishments, and the first manned mission to Mars.
The Curiosity rover landed in August 2016, but it hasn’t been able to fully explore the Gale crater.
It has only been able take some of the images from inside of the lakebed that it has captured.
But NASA announced last week that the rover had taken a series of high-resolution images from the bottom of the Mars crater.
These images reveal a number of details about the interior and surface of the impact site, including the location of the landing site, the location and age of the site, and other geologic features.
