Opportunity Mission Success Panorama, sols 2-5
Opportunity Mission Success Panorama, sols 2-5 This expansive view of the martian real estate surrounding the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is the first 360 degree, high-resolution color image taken by the rover's panoramic camera on sols 2-5 (26-29 Jan 2004). The airbag marks, or footprints, seen in the soil trace the route by which Opportunity rolled to its final resting spot inside a small crater at Meridiani Planum, Mars. The exposed rock outcropping is a future target for further examination. This image mosaic consists of 225 individual frames. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell
