Curiosity's forward Hazard Avoidance Cameras (Hazcams) as seen from MAHLI, sol 34
Filed under explaining technology, spacecraft, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
On sol 33, Curiosity used its Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) to take the first views of previously unseen parts of the rover, including the two pairs of Hazard Avoidance Cameras (Hazcams). Curiosity uses only one pair at a time. On sol 33, Curiosity was using the first and third of these (images from these two have filenames beginning with "FRA" and "FLA"); the second and fourth form a backup pair attached to the B-side computer ("FRB" and "FLB").
