Blog Post Image: Laser Instrument on NASA Mars Rover Tops 100,000 Zaps

The rock “Ithaca” shown here, with a rougher lower texture and smoother texture on top, appears to be a piece of the local sedimentary bedrock protruding from the surrounding soil in Gale Crater. NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover used its Mast Camera (Mastcam) to take this image during the 439th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity’s work on Mars (Oct. 30, 2013). Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS
