Curiosity’s First Colour Panoramic View Of Mars

– “For You To Enjoy And Share With Friends” –

This is Curiosity’s first colour panoramic view of the surrounding Gale’s Crater terrain. You can see the base of Mt. Sharp which is being planned as the next destination after Curiosity visits a region close to the landing site that has been called Glenelg.

After Glenelg, the rover will aim to drive to the Base of Mt. Sharp, which is a natural break in the dunes that will allow Curiosity to begin scaling the lower reaches of Mount Sharp. At the base of Mt. Sharp are layered buttes and mesas that scientists hope will reveal the area’s geological history.
