Go Back

This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D, or scroll down for other stereo or flicker gif versions.

3D view of holes in Curiosity's left middle wheel, sol 463 Curiosity used her hand-lens imager to capture a view of the rover's wheels sitting on Martian soil on sol 463 (November 24, 2013). The clear air permits a detailed view of the distant rim of Gale crater in the background. Several holes have been punched clear through the thin metal between Curiosity's wheel treads.

Stereo versions

Stereo images are composed of one image for the left eye and one image for the right eye. Crossed-eye stereo presents the right-eye image on the left, and left-eye image on the right. Parallel-eye stereo presents the left-eye image on the left, and the right-eye image on the right. A flicker gif presents the left- and right-eye images alternately.
