We are becoming more and more familiar with the Red Planet, exploring Mars with robots and flyovers, combing the atmosphere and doing all manner of measurements. But we are still amazed at how terrestrial and familiar it can look, like in these new photos from NASA’s Curiosity rover. These amazing images were snapped by Curiosity’s Mastcam, and they show an area called the Murray Buttes, full of eroded sandstone cliffs. Via NASA:
Reminds me of my Mt. Whitney climb last year. Are you sure these aren’t from CA 😉?
Awesome but I think I’ll stick to earth for a while longer lol. At least while I still inhabit human bodies 😉 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
