Oppy’s “hand” in close-up

I think it’s fair to say that things are very quiet on Mars at the moment, hence the lack of daily updates here. Oppy is still standing there, parked up at Greeley Haven, and there appears to have been no more movement of that wheel, or any of Oppy’s wheels. But Oppy is still taking pictures, and beaming them back to Earth, and a recent batch included a nice set of colour filter images showing the “Business end” of the rover – the instrument package on the end of her robot arm, which I duly combined into a single colour image…

…and what, exactly, are we looking at there? This diagram will explain…

More pictures soon, check back when you can.
