Oppy scores first interplanetary hole-in-one Opportunity used her Panoramic Camera (Pancam) to take this image shortly after bouncing down on Mars, at 9:05 p.m., Jan. 24, 2004 PST. One of the first images the rover beamed back to Earth, it shows the Martian landscape at Meridiani Planum—and it clearly shows that the rover scored, astonishingly, Earth’s first interplanetary hole-in-one by bouncing down and then rolling right into a small crater soon named Eagle.
