The image sent by the Curiosity Rover from Mars is murky apparently due to dust. But I am sure the next images would be much sharper and clearer. Soon we would probably see little green men in the background too.
Hazy image reveal mountains in the distance
Researchers set to begin testing the rover’s systems
After travelling 352 million miles in eight-and-a-half months, you could be forgiven for expecting Nasa’s Curiosity rover to take things easy and adjust to its new surroundings. However, the rover was hard at work, and today sent back its first colour image, revealing the Gale crater where it landed, and where it will soon begin looking for the ingredients for life.
The image is murky because the MAHLI’s removable dust cover is apparently coated with dust blown onto the camera during the rover’s terminal descent.
