Soil under Curiosity, sol 521 MARDI panorama
Soil under Curiosity, sol 521 MARDI panorama This unusual panorama was acquired on Curiosity sol 521 as the rover drove forward in short steps in order to image the wheels. At each step, MARDI snapped a photo. MARDI's optics are covered with dust from the landing, but it still provides a good view of the pebbled surface beneath the rover. NASA / JPL / MSSS / "Greenish"
