Look at that… see how close Solander Point is now? We canm see individual boulders on its slopes, we can see the ledges and ridges Oppy will be exploring and studying in the weeks and months ahead… I bet the MER geologists are positively drooling at the prospect of getting up there!
But what’s the road to Solander Point like now? Put on your 3D glasses (you DO have a pair handy by your PC all the time now, right?!) and look at the ground between Oppy and the base of Solander Point…
…it’s quite ripply, quite hummocky, rocks and stones everywhere, but it’s a deserted car park compared to the godawful desert she crossed to get here in the first
More images expected soon, so keep checking back ok?
