Go Back

Observations of Curiosity's left-middle wheel from sol 513 to sol 1471 Curiosity periodically uses its MAHLI camera to survey the progression of damage to its wheels. The left-middle wheel has accumulated the most damage, but progression has been slow. So far, no grousers (treads) are broken.
