Opportunity’s recent roves, October 2017
Opportunity’s recent roves, October 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 rover spent the month of September 2017 studying the valley from a science stop called, simply, station 2. Annotations for the graphic on the right were meticulously documented by Phil Stooke, Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, author of The International Atlas of Mars Exploration Volumes 1 and 2, (Cambridge University Press). The base images were taken by the Context Camera [left] and the HiRISE camera [right] both onboard MRO. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UA / Malin Space Science Systems / P. Stooke
