NASA’s Curiosity rover captured unique rock formations in Gale crater

NASA’s Curiosity rover has sent back a number of images of the dusty red planet, foreign media CNET reported. The rover is exploring an area on Mars called Central Butte. Curiosity’s right-hand navigation camera captured the vision on Friday from a location called Central Butte inside the Gale Crater crater.


The layered rock formations of this highland can be seen from the image. Scientists from the Curiosity team are very interested in the geology of the area.


At first glance, the Curiosity rover seems to have observed strange fog or clouds from a distance. To understand Curiosity’s point of view, you should know that the Gale Crater is 96 miles (154 kilometers) in diameter, with a towering peak (Sharp Peak) in the middle and surrounded by a lot of rubble.
