This image shows mosaic of four frames
Close-up of 'Davis' on 'Jibsheet' Outcrop

This mosaic of four frames from the microscopic imager on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit shows the texture of a target called "Davis" on a rock outcrop called "Jibsheet" on "Husband Hill" inside Mars' Gusev Crater. The images were taken on Spirit's 487th martian day, or "sol (May 17, 2005). The individual frames are each 3 centimeters (1.2 inches) across and they overlap slightly in this two-by-two array. The glossier central region of the mosaic, about 4.5 centimeters (1.8 inches) in diameter, was scrubbed with the wire-bristle brush of Spirit's rock abrasion tool. The scale of the images (31 microns or one one-thousandth of an inch per pixel) allows features as small as 0.1 millimeter (four one-thousandths of an inch) to be resolved. The image has been rotated 180 degrees

This image shows mosaic of 24 frames from the microscopic imager
Close-up of 'Keystone' on 'Methuselah' Outcrop

This mosaic of 24 frames from the microscopic imager on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit shows the texture of a target called "Keystone" on the "Methuselah" outcrop of layered rock on "Husband Hill" inside Mars' Gusev Crater. The images were taken on Spirit's 469th martian day, or "sol (April 28, 2005). The target area shows fine layers that may have been deposited by wind or water. The individual frames are each 3 centimeters (1.2 inches) across and they overlap slightly in this array of six frames horizontally by four frames vertically. The target was fully shadowed when the images were acquired. The scale of the images (31 microns or one one-thousandth of an inch per pixel) allows features as small as 0.1 millimeter (four one-thousandths of an inch) to be resolved.

Spirit Arm Movements for Mosaic of "Keystone"

In this movie clip, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit moves its robotic arm, called the instrument deployment device, to take a series of images with the rover's microscopic imager during the rover's 469th martian day, or sol (April 28, 2005). The images making up this clip were taken by Spirit's left front hazard identification camera. The arm's carefully planned motions positioned the microscopic imager to take an array of 24 images of this rock target, dubbed "Keystone," at an outcrop called "Methuselah." The microscopic imager frames were combined into a mosaic view showing the finely laminated texture of the rock.

Texture of Rock at 'Jibsheet'

A bulbous texture is evident in this rock target at the outcrop called "Jibsheet" in this view from the microscopic imager on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit. Frames making up this mosaic image of a target dubbed "Reef" were taken during the rover's 481st martian day, or sol (May 11, 2005).

This images shows an exposure of bedrock dubbed Larry's Outcrop
Spirit View of 'Larry's Outcrop'

An exposure of bedrock dubbed "Larry's Outcrop" on the flank of "Husband Hill" inside Mars' Gusev Crater shows little layering in this view. NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera in May 2005 to take the images combined into this mosaic.

'Larry's Outcrop'in False Color

A portion of an exposure of bedrock dubbed "Larry's Outcrop" shows little layering in this view, in contrast to nearby outcrops called "Methuselah" and "Jibsheet." NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera in May 2005 to take this image, which is presented in false color.

This images shows simulated oblique aerial view
Spirit Territory in Hills

A simulated oblique aerial view looking toward the southeast shows the portion of the "Columbia Hills" inside Mars' Gusev Crater where the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has been examining outcrops near "Larry's Lookout" during April and May of 2005. This orbital view comprises images taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and processed by the U.S. Geological Survey as a three-dimensional terrain model.

Spirit Territory in Hills

Three outcrops near each other on the flank of "Husband Hill" inside Gusev Crater are labeled on this false-color view assembled from frames taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit's panoramic camera on the rover's 454th martian day, or sol (April 13, 2005).

'Methuselah' in False Color

An outcrop dubbed "Methuselah," approached by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in April 2005, presented a more extensive exposure of layered rock than Spirit had found in the all its preceding 15 months since landing on Mars. This view of Methuselah by Spirit's panoramic camera is presented in false color.

This images shows an outcrop dubbed Jibsheet
'Jibsheet" in False Color

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit drove up to this outcrop, called "Jibsheet," on the flank of "Husband Hill," in early March 2005. This view of Jibsheet by Spirit's panoramic camera is presented in false color.
