Mars Panorama - Curiosity rover: Martian solar day 1065
Out of this World

Sol 1065: Curiosity Rover's Self Portrait at "Buckskin" Drilling Site

This panorama combines 92 exposures taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the Sol 1065 of Curiosity's work on Mars (August 4, 2015).

 

Curiosity Rover have reached milestone 3 years on Mars! As of today, Sol 1065, August 4, 2015, Curiosity has driven some 11 kilometers and taken over 256,000 amazing images.

It’s been a great three years, full of a number of important science discoveries. Check out this video and webpage for a summary of some of the top science results so far. To celebrate starting her 4 th year on Mars, Curiosity is driving away from the Lion outcrop, and back toward the Missoula outcrop. I feel like Curiosity has really grown up in these past couple of years, and she’s acting like a true field geologist – quickly interpreting key science data, and revisiting sites that will improve our understanding of the geologic history here. In today’s plan, Curiosity will make a couple of final observations at Lion before driving away. In the morning we’ll acquire ChemCam and Mastcam on the target "Moiese" to look for chemical variations across the outcrop. Just before driving away, we’ll take one last Mastcam image of the dump pile , using all of the camera filters. Then we’ll drive back towards Missoula, and take some Navcam images to prepare for ChemCam targeting in tomorrow’s plan. Keep on roving!

More About Out of this World

The planet Earth has proven to be too limiting for our awesome community of panorama photographers. We're getting an increasing number of submissions that depict locations either not on Earth (like Mars, the Moon, and Outer Space in general) or do not realistically represent a geographic location on Earth (either because they have too many special effects or are computer generated) and hence don't strictly qualify for our Panoramic World project.But many of these panoramas are extremely beautiful or popular of both.So, in order to accommodate our esteemed photographers and the huge audience that they attract to 360Cities with their panoramas, we've created a new section (we call it an "area") called "Out of this World" for panoramas like these.Don't let the fact that these panoramas are being placed at the Earth's South Pole fool you - we had to put them somewhere in order not to interfere with our Panoramic World.Welcome aboard on a journey "Out of this World".
