Tabular rocks on tap

Tabular rocks on tap
Tabular rocks on tap The plan had been for Opportunity to drive upslope in April 2018 to tabular rocks that are positioned above San Juan Pueblo, the area rich with vesicular-like rocks and outcrops. The rover wound up driving right past these layered outcrops however and ultimately the MER scientists decided to have their field geologist stop at another dark rock marked with holes first. The revised plan has the rover heading back downslope to the tabular outcrops in May. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU
