Opportunity route map, December 2017 The orbital image of the western rim of Endeavour Crater [left] shows the path Opportunity took from Cape Tribulation to Perseverance Valley, which the robot is currently exploring. The map on the right shows the rover’s movements up to Nov. 27, 2017. Phil Stooke, Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, and author of The International Atlas of Mars Exploration Volumes 1 and 2, (Cambridge University Press), meticulously documented this graphic with sol and site annotations. The base images were taken by the Context Camera [left] and the HiRISE camera [right] both onboard MRO. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Malin Space Science Systems / UA / P. Stooke
