This image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity, shows the lower reaches of 'Murray Ridge,' informally named to honor the late Bruce Murray, who led NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory through a period of great challenge and achievement.
'Murray Ridge' on Rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars, False Color
This scene shows the 'Murray Ridge' portion of the western rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars, as seen by NASA's Opportunity rover. It is presented in false color to make some differences between materials easier to see.
This scene shows the 'Murray Ridge' portion of the western rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars as seen by NASA's rover Opportunity; this feature is called Murray Ridge in tribute to Bruce Murray (1931-2013), an influential advocate for planetary exploration.
Geological Boundary at the Edge of 'Solander Point'
NASA's Opportunity used the navigation camera (Navcam) on its mast to capture this southward facing scene along the eastern flank of 'Solander Point' during the 3,387 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Aug. 3, 2013).
Color View From Orbit Showing Opportunity in 'Botany Bay'
This image taken by the HiRISE camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, captures Opportunity traversing south (at the end of the white arrow) to new science targets and a winter haven at 'Solander Point,' another portion of the Endeavour rim.
NASA's Opportunity used its Pancam to record this view of the rise in the foreground, called 'Nobbys Head.' This view is centered toward the south-southeast, with Opportunity's next destination, 'Solander Point,' toward the right edge of the view.
'Nobbys Head' on Opportunity's Southward Route (Stereo)
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity recorded this 3D view of a rise called 'Nobbys Head' during a stop on a multi-week southward drive between two raised segments of the west rim of Endeavour Crater.
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to acquire this view of 'Solander Point.' The southward-looking scene, presented in true color, shows Solander Point on the center horizon.
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera to acquire this view looking toward the southwest. The scene includes tilted rocks at the edge of a bench surrounding 'Cape York,' with Burns formation rocks exposed in 'Botany Bay.'
Perspective View of 'Botany Bay' and Surroundings, With Vertical Exaggeration
A stereo pair of images from taken from Mars orbit were used to generate a digital elevation model that is the basis for this simulated perspective view of "Cape York," "Botany Bay," and "Solander Point" on the western rim of Endeavour Crater.
This triangle plot shows the relative concentrations of some of the major chemical elements in the Martian rock "Esperance." The compositions of average Martian crust and of montmorillonite, a common clay mineral, are shown.
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity drove onto the 'Cape York' segment of the rim of Endeavour Crater in August 2011 and departed Cape York in May 2013. The location of a rock target called 'Esperance' is indicated in the main map.
This map shows the route driven by NASA's Opportunity rover from the site of its landing, inside Eagle crater, to its location more than 112 months later, in late May 2013, departing the 'Cape York' section of the rim of Endeavour crater.
Close-Up of 'Esperance' After Abrasion by Opportunity
This mosaic shot by the microscopic imager on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows a rock target called 'Esperance' after some of the rock's surface had been removed by Opportunity's rock abrasion tool.
