At the transition of rough rock to sand there are dark vertical streaks called recurring slope lineae (#RSL). RSL forms during warm weather and fades as temperatures decrease. Scientists speculate that liquid water is involved in their formation. RSL is composed of perchlorate salts which can absorb
Curiosity took dozens of #MastCam images to complete this mosaic of a petrified sand dune. Unlike prior dunes, this dune seems to be deposited by wind, not water. The geometry and orientation of the structure provide clues about the direction of the ancient winds that produced it. The first of these
The spice must flow, but this dune is petrified. This Mars sandstone likely deposited by wind
This low-angle 'selfie' of Curiosity was captured by the Mars Hand Lens Imager #MAHLI and stitched together from dozens of images. You'll see the drill dust from the "Buckskin" rock target where #Curiosity collected its seventh soil sample. This was the first drilling operation since an intermittent
My twin at @NASAJPL will send her name to Mars on @NASAInSight. Got your boarding pass yet?…
There is no spoon. This weird Mars feature is likely a ventifact—a rock shaped by wind. Info:
The Little Rover: The circular version of my recent selfie inspired this work by MAHLI's Megan Kennedy Wu. Merci!
