Explanation: Which way up Mount Sharp? In early September, the robotic rover Curiosity continued its ascent up the central peak of Gale Crater, searching for more clues about ancient water and further evidence that Mars could once have been capable of supporting life. On this recent Martian morning, before exploratory drilling, the rolling rover took this 360-degree panorama, in part to help Curiosity’s human team back on Earth access the landscape and chart possible future routes. In the horizontally-compressed featured image, an amazing vista across Mars was captured, complete with layered hills, red rocky ground, gray drifting sand, and a dusty atmosphere. The hill just left of center has been dubbed Maria Gordon Notch in honor of a famous Scottish geologist. The current plan is to direct Curiosity to approach, study, and pass just to the right of Gordon Notch on its exploratory trek.

说明: 该沿那条路径爬上夏普山呢?在今年九月初,好奇号火星车持续往盖尔坑的中心峰攀登,以寻找更多远古体的遗迹和星曾有生命的更多迹证。在不久前的火星清晨,在进行试探钻孔之前,这部火星车拍下这幅360度全景部分意途在于协助地球上的好奇号操作团队,打量这片原野和规划它未来前行的途径。这幅水平方向经过压缩的主题影像,呈现火星片精采的景观,包括层状丘、红岩地、灰风吹沙、和满是尘埃大气。而影像中左方的山丘则名为玛丽亚戈登凹壁,以纪念同名的著名苏格兰地质学家。在探索的旅程中,目前的规划是让好奇号前去、研究和通过戈登凹壁右侧紧邻的区域。
