View Full Version : Discussion: Opportunity Reaches Endurance Crater

SUMMARY: NASA released a 180-degree view of Endurance Crater this week, a target Opportunity has been rolling towards for many days. After taking in the view, Opportunity will try a few spots around the rim of the 130-metre crater to see if it can drive down without rolling over - hopefully it'll be able to get back out again. Portions of the crater's sides appear almost paved with smooth rocks, while in other areas it has steep walls with exposed rock, similar to the crater Opportunity landed in. It should be a treasure trove of scientific data.
