With all of the chaos happening down here on earth, it’s easy to forget that NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is up exploring the Martian landscape. A new photo released by NASA shows some truly eerie imagery of the Endeavour crater, which is approximately 14 miles wide.
The photo was taken on August 6th, right before the Opportunity began exploring around that area. On August 9th, the Opportunity began exploring at the rim of the crater.
The bleakness of the landscape is an interesting reminder that we really aren’t that familiar with the landscape of foreign planets.
