The Grand Tour of Concepcion begins…

Oppy is now slowly but surely working her way around Concepcion Crater, so her view is changing, slightly, every daty. Today new images came back, and as you can see from that pic at the top there Oppy can now see the north-facing blocks on the rim of the crater very clearly. And if you click on the image below – a crop of the image at screen top – you’ll see that a couple of them have really interesting crust, or ‘rind’, on them…

Looking forward to seeing more images of that! 🙂

Meanwhile, another image of that lumpy, spotty rock I showed you in an earlier post (which I have been told is called “Mahanay Island”) has come in, allowing me to make this rather stunning 3D image…

Here’s another 3D view, this time showing Oppy’s tracks around Concepcion Crater…

This is what the MER mission is all about – exploring, seeing new sights every day… Can’t wait to see tomorrow’s views! 🙂
