Opportunity's "Legacy" Panorama

Opportunity's "Legacy" Panorama
Opportunity's "Legacy" Panorama Opportunity’s last Martian field site was Perseverance valley, a 200-meter-long channel that cut into Endeavour crater’s rim. Like Earth field geologists, the Opportunity team sought out places like crater rims—and channels cut into them—to expose layered bedrock that illuminates Mars’ history in this spot. The exaggerated colors of this panorama emphasize the diversity among rocks and soils that Opportunity encountered at Endeavour. The black-and-white frames in the lower left are portions Opportunity was still planning to image in color when the mission-ending dust storm hit. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU
