Curiosity route map: Wide view (updated to sol 644)
Curiosity route map: Wide view (updated to sol 644) An overview of the major landmarks along Curiosity's traverse to date. Both past (light yellow) and proposed future (dark yellow) paths are based on Curiosity mission maps produced by Fred Calef. Murray Buttes marks the point where Curiosity will be able to navigate across the basaltic sand dune field and finally begin to approach the layered, clay-rich rocks for which Curiosity's landing site was selected. The base map is a Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Context Camera mosaic assembled by Tanya Harrison, colorized with a Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera image.
