Curiosity's wheels on sol 463: tear in left front wheel
Curiosity took these photos of her wheels with the MAHLI arm-mounted camera on sol 463 (November 24, 2013) A large rip has appeared above the Morse-code holes in the left front wheel. Several smaller punch-holes are visible in it and the middle wheel in this view.

Here is a close look at the large rip, taken from image 0463MH0262000000E1_DXXX.
