Curiosity's Location During Arm CheckoutsThis scene shows the surroundings of the location where NASA Mars rover Curiosity arrived on the 29th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (Sept. 4, 2012). It is a mosaic of images taken by Curiosity's Navigation Camera (Navcam) following the Sol 29 drive of 100 feet (30.5 meters). Tracks from the drive are visible in the image. For scale, Curiosity leaves parallel tracks about 9 feet (2.7 meters) apart.
At this location on Sol 30, Curiosity began a series of activities to test and characterize the rover's robotic arm and the tools on the arm.
The panorama is centered to the north-northeast, with south-southwest at both ends.
