Cooperstown outcrop, Curiosity sol 441
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Mars, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
Curiosity snapped 16 images through its high-resolution Mastcam-100 on sol 441 (November 2, 2013) to examine the Cooperstown outcrop up close. Angular clasts appear to be embedded in a massive matrix. The underlying rock is less resistant to erosion, so the outcrop is undercut.
