Rock Targets Studied for Mastcam-Z's Instrument Calibration

Rock Targets Studied for Mastcam-Z's Instrument Calibration
Rock Targets Studied for Mastcam-Z's Instrument Calibration On the left is a cropped image taken by the left Mastcam-Z camera during the instrument’s calibration activities at Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego. The targets mounted to this “geoboard” include Mars analog rocks, color standards, geometric targets, and models of the real Mastcam-Z calibration targets as well as several artistic rock mosaics and the LEGO Mastcam-Z logo made by Emily Lakdawalla. On the right, author Jess Mollerup prepares to image one of the rock mosaics (a “stratigraphic column”) with the hyperspectral camera at Caltech. ASU/MSSS and Faith Haney
