Ten Kilometers and Counting, on MarsNASA's Curiosity Mars rover used its Navigation Camera (Navcam) to capture this scene toward the west just after completing a drive that took the mission's total driving distance past 10 kilometers (6.214 miles).
The drive on April 16, 2015, during the 957th Martian day, or sol of Curiosity's work on Mars covered 208 feet (63.5 meters). It advanced the rover westward through a sandy-floored valley. The valley is on the rover's route toward a higher site on Mount Sharp than sites it has investigated previously.
