NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover Delivers Detailed View Of Mount Sharp With Telephoto Lens | TPM Idea Lab

NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover has one specific feature on the Red Planet in its sights: Mount Sharp, a 3.4-mile high Martian mountain located near the rover’s landing site. Both are found inside Gale Crater, itself a 96-mile-wide shallow depression over which liquid water may have once flowed in the ancient history of Mars.

On Monday, NASA released a new batch of images snapped by the unmanned rover, including several new highly detailed shots of Mount Sharp, presently located about 15 miles south of the rover.
