While investigating the lower rock layers (~500ft/150m) of Mount Sharp (#AeolisMons), #Curiosity used its #FocusMerge technology to obtain a clear closeup image of the sedimentary rock layers. It is believed that these layers were once part of a lake bed tens of millions of years ago. This #MAHLI co
How did Mars' Mount Sharp come to be? The answer, dear Watson, is sedimentary.
Layers of Intrigue: Data show millions of years of lake sediment built Mars' Mt Sharp
Meanwhile, back on the Red Planet. Tune in Monday for news from my mission.
Congrats #Orion! We're one step closer to bootprints next to these rover tracks. #JourneyToMars
Pics I take on Mars get posted online. Some high-res, some thumbnail. Some B&W, others color:…
3 years ago, I left Earth for Mars. Wishing you safe travels this #Thanksgiving, too!
It's like potatoes, gravy & stuffing all right here. So many delicious science targets in easy reach.
Science is lovelier, the 2nd time around. Took a closer look at intriguing rocks.
Having reached the base of Mount Sharp (#AeolisMons), #Curiosity captured this image of its rocky surroundings using its Right-side #MastCam on Sol 796 (2014-11-02 00:38:32 UTC). Instagram contrast enhanced photo, no filters.
Orbiting scientist & great communicator. Nice working with you, @MAVEN2Mars
It's a match! Drilling analysis confirms minerals mapped from Mars orbit
Meanwhile, back on Mars… Continuing my science walkabout. I got these pictures for you:
Parked at the foot of Mount Sharp (#AeolisMons), #Curiosity uses its Right-side 'B' #NavCam to image this dune-textured sea of wind blown sand on Sol 777 (2014-10-13 13:47:20 UTC). Instagram contrast enhanced photo.
Hope to catch a comet! Sun has set at Gale Crater; now's my best chance to observe #MarsComet Siding Spring.
Stay safe @HiRISE @MAVEN2Mars @Mars_Orbiter Mars Odyssey! Peak dust from #MarsComet expected ~12:57pm-1:17pm PT
The #MarsComet Cometh! Closest approach to Mars today at 11:27am PT. Timeline, pics, info:…

That view tho MT @MarsRovers Look through Opportunity's eyes on Mars. Full-res+info
Two sides of my home planet are joining together in exploration. Well done, @NASA + @isro!
At the base of Mount Sharp (#AeolisMons), #Curiosity images an interesting junction of clean layered rock and sand dune. It is here that Curiosity will deploy its hammer drill to collect specimens for analysis. This image was taken by Left-side 'B' #NavCam on Sol 759 (2014-09-24 22:42:00 UTC)
More than a molehill in the mountain—my 1st sampling of the base of Mars' Mt Sharp
