NASA'S Curiosity Rover Just Took The Most Incredible Pictures Yet Of The Martian Surface



NASA's Curiosity rover has been traveling to the lower a part of Mount Sharp on the Marian surface, and therefore the rover just shared some color images that provide us extraordinary sights of the bizarre rock formations on the Red Planet. As you'll see from the pictures posted here in the article, Mars seems to be strangely familiar, and it's acquired the researcher’s attention. Curiosity project scientist, Ashwin Vasavada, said:

 

"Curiosity's science team has been thrilled to travel on this road trip through a small amount of the American desert Southwest on Mars,"

 


These images were taken by the rover within the Murray Buttes area on the lower planes of Mount Sharp, which makes the central peak inside Mars’s colossal Gale crater. because the name suggests, the Murray Buttes area is occupied with formations called buttes and mesas, which are like minor, rocky uplands rising up from the mountain slope.

 

These were formed over legion years thanks to weathering and corrosion, buttes appear to be tall, flat-topped, and steep-sided and seem to create from bigger mesas or plateaus.

 


NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been traveling through the Murray Buttes area of Mount Sharp for over a month, and it's now prepared to maneuver on and trips the upper parts of the mountain - but not before it finishes its newest drilling crusade on the southernmost butte of the world.

 

So take an honest have to look at these images and remember that this is often Mars, and it's 225 million km (140 million miles) removed from Earth.
