Top of Perseverance

Top of Perseverance
Top of Perseverance Toward the right side of this scene is a broad notch in the crest of the western rim of Endeavour Crater that looks like it might once have been a spillway. In the spring of 2017, Opportunity left tracks while checking out the top of Perseverance Valley, which descends out of sight from the notch. This scene includes troughs that may have been formed by water, wind, or faults caused by the impact that created Endeavour or something else. The objective is to determine what force or forces formed Perseverance. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU
