A fascinating place…

Having completed her FIRST marathon on Mars, Opportunity hasn’t started the drive towards Marathon Valley just yet. It seems the geology around the valley entrance is just too interesting to ignore. Oppy is now parked next to a raised outcrop of light rock which has been christened “Athens” by the MER team, and she’s taking a good, close look at it.

And over there – no, not there, over there – is a very interesting boulder indeed…

Ok, everyone, synchronise watches, it’s countdown time… T minus four hours until the tin foil hat-wearing nutters declare Opportunity has found – and NASA is hiding – a Standing Stone on Mars…  MARK…
