Endeavour Crater

Endeavour Crater
Endeavour Crater Opportunity drove up to the west rim of Endeavour, a 22-kilometer (13.7 mile) diameter crater, at Cape York, in August 2011. After finding signs of past water and ancient clay minerals there, the robot field geologist roved on, and is currently in Cape Byron conducting the first-ever study of an ancient geological feature that from orbit looks like it was carved by water. The base image is a mosaic taken by the Malin Space Science Systems’ Context Camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Larry Crumpler, of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, provided the labeling. North is up. NASA / JPL-Caltech / MSSS / NMMNHS / L. Crumpler
