Cooperstown outcrop, Curiosity sol 441
Cooperstown outcrop, Curiosity sol 441 Curiosity snapped 16 images through its high-resolution Mastcam-100 on sol 441 (November 2, 2013) to examine the Cooperstown outcrop up close. Angular clasts appear to be embedded in a massive matrix. The underlying rock is less resistant to erosion, so the outcrop is undercut. NASA / JPL / MSSS / Emily Lakdawalla
