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
I'm rolling out the red carpet on the Red Planet for the newest Mars orbiter. Welcome, @MAVEN2Mars!
My future's so bright... Planning arrival at Mars' "Pahrump Hills" & doing remote science along the way
On 11-Sept-2014 #Curiosity finally reached the central peak of Gale Crater, Mount Sharp (#AeolisMons), which rises 5.5km/3.4mi high from the valley floor. Damage to Curiosity's 0.75mm thick aluminum wheels (7.5mm treads) is evident. They were designed to last the 10-20km distance of Curiosity's prim
I'm all about that base. Reached the base layer of Mt Sharp. New science ahead!
Keep calm & do a science. Meet teams helping us spacecraft dodge/study the #MarsComet Apply:
