Curiosity wheel survey, sol 1046
Curiosity performed a complete five-position survey of all wheels on sol 1046 with the MAHLI camera on the end of the arm. The damage to the wheels has changed only slightly since sol 708.

Here is a detailed look at the progression of damage to the left-middle wheel.
