3D view of holes in Curiosity's left middle wheel, sol 463
3D view of holes in Curiosity's left middle wheel, sol 463 Curiosity used her hand-lens imager to capture a view of the rover's wheels sitting on Martian soil on sol 463 (November 24, 2013). The clear air permits a detailed view of the distant rim of Gale crater in the background. Several holes have been punched clear through the thin metal between Curiosity's wheel treads.
