Find Opportunity

In this photo the Mars Rover Opportunity, after travelling 9200m over the Martian surface, is standing on the edge of the 70m deep Victoria crater. The crater allows the geologists to look into much deeper layers of sediment, thus giving a deeper look into Martian history. There is a good chance that Opportunity may never come out of the crater and that's why the HiRise camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took this picture. click on the picture to get a much more detailed view (16MB)

The expensive "world" hobby, space exploration, brings great pictures!
