Today marks 10 years since the Curiosity rover landed on Mars. Since August 2012, Curiosity has been exploring 3-mile-high Mt. Sharp in Gale Crater. The rover has climbed more than 2,000 feet (612 meters), reaching progressively younger rocks that serve as a record on how Mars has evolved from a wet, habitable planet to a cold desert environment.

The photogenic rover created this self-portrait at Gale Crater on Sol 2082 (June 15, 2018) using the Mars Hand Lens Imager, or MAHLI.

今天是好奇号火星车登陆火星10周年。自2012年8月以来,好奇号一直在探索盖尔陨石坑中3英里高的夏普山。火星车已经爬升了超过2,000英尺(612米),逐渐到达了更年轻的岩石,这些岩石记录了火星是如何从潮湿宜居的行星演变成寒冷的沙漠环境。

这张很上镜的火星车于第2082个火星日(2018年6月15日)在盖尔陨石坑用火星手镜头成像仪(MAHLI)拍摄的自画像。
