The Mars Report – September 9, 2012


The Mars Report

September 7, 2012

Welcome back, my dear readers, to ‘The Mars Report’! Today I have several images for you to view. As well, I have found some schematic drawings of the Curiosity rover. These drawings will give you a much better idea of just what Curiosity can do while on Mars. What science can this rover actually accomplish millions of miles from home? To that end, we come to my first image of the day. This drawing shows the many tools needed, to support the robotic arms, for the scientific experimentation.

Quite logically, the robotic arm is the subject matter for our next image. The mast camera took this shot and it shows us the robotic arm on the Curiosity rover. As you look at the arm, you can clearly see the different tools connected, for collecting the many different types of samples.

Our next image shows you just where the robotic arm is located, on Curiosity. This is an engineer drawing shows the robotic arm, and the turrets that support the arm.

Now, let’s move into low orbit. This shot was taken from High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) instrument on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It shows Curiosity rover and the tire tracks in the Martian soil it has left behind. This is pretty much proof positive that we actually did land Curiosity on Mars. I know it is hard to believe, but I have already encountered some that think we didn’t land.

For our last, as usual our best shot of the evening. I bring you one totally clear, and incredible, High Definition panorama of Mars. This shot was taken as Curiosity went through the robotic arm checks, which we saw images from above. Now, hopefully the ‘thumbnail’ will show up so everyone can see the little version of this shot. However, if you want the full impact of this shot, click on it. Click on the image below and it will take you to the full HD panoramic image from Mars!

That brings us to the end of our pictorial adventure. As always, I had a great time sharing and showing images to you. I hope that you have enjoyed yourself, too. Be sure to tell friends, and family about this site and my work. The greatest compliment you can pay a writer or artist? Tell other people about them! I hope that you have a great weekend, and that joy and happiness finds you where ever you may be.

Thank you for your kindness and continued support!
