Mars Photo of the Day - Dec 11 2011

Today's Image of Mars is of Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity's landing site in Gale Crater. In a previous post I showed the MSL landing site in context of the larger crater, but in this image you can get a better idea of the terrain the rover will be navigating through.

MSL Curiosity is set to land here in August 2012. For more on the MSL mission check out my article entitled Mars Science Laboratory Mission.

This image is from HiRISE, but they have not currently captioned it. Clicking this image will take you to other photos and articles on Gale Crater.
