New images snapped by NASA’s Curiosity rover showcase the stunning, expansive landscape of Mars. Recently, the Curiosity rover traveled to the side of Mars’ Mount Sharp, or Aeolis Mons, a mountain that forms the central peak of Gale Crater. There, mission team members captured the beauty of the natural Martian landscape with Curiosity’s navigation cameras. Curiosity is not the newest robot on Mars, as NASA’s Perseverance rover landed on Feb. The rover has discovered a lake and streams and, two years into its mission, reached the base of Mount Sharp, which stands 5 miles tall in the center of the crater. In August, the rover arrived at a new region in its journey, one that is intriguing to scientists because of its mineral-rich rocks and materials that could reveal information about the planet’s climate. The rover has thus far traveled over 16 miles on the Red Planet and climbed over 1,500 feet above where it originally landed in the crater.
