The Curiosity Rover is a fantastic machine as well as far ranging geologist — and like most geologists it is thriving in the field! This photo was taken this month with the HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera aboard the Mars Orbiter. The photo clearly shows Curiosity’s path, avoiding obstacles along the way, until finally approaching an outcrop about the height of three persons named Mount Remarkable.

    Ama-a-a-zing! Looks like the same camera NSA is using to observe our daily comings and goings!
