3d view of the Murray Buttes, Gale crater, Mars (zoom) A strip of black sand dunes separates Curiosity's landing site in the flat northern floor of Gale crater from the enticing rocks of Mount Sharp. A gap in the dunes occurs in a field of buttes, which the rover team has named for Bruce Murray, a founder of The Planetary Society. Two HiRISE images taken on August 17 and 22, 2008, allow a 3D view of the landscape. More formats: Left stereo | Right stereo | Flicker gif NASA / JPL / UA / Emily Lakdawalla
