Opportunity’s long and winding road, March 2018
Opportunity’s long and winding road, March 2018 The gold line on the image on the left shows Opportunity's route from the Eagle Crater landing site to Marathon Valley, not too far from her current location in Perseverance Valley. The base image for the map is a mosaic of images taken by the Context Camera onboard the MRO. Larry Crumpler, of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, provided the route add-ons. Right graphic shows the rover’s movements up to Feb. 12, 2018, the last drive of the month. Assoc. Professor at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, Phil Stooke, author of The International Atlas of Mars Exploration Volumes 1 and 2, (Cambridge University Press), documented this graphic with sol and site annotations. The base image was taken by the HiRISE camera also onboard MRO. Left: NASA / JPL-Caltech / MSSS / L. Crumpler, NMMNHS; Right: UA / P. Stooke
