MRO snapped Curiosity making tracks across Mars. A GIF shows the rover in two different spots, having traveled 1,106 feet (337 meters) across an area known as the clay-bearing unit. The GIF highlights the rover with a circle and also points out the faint wheel tracks.
The rover took this stroll between May 21 and July 20. Curiosity has been busy drilling into the ground in the Gale Crater to learn more about the history of water on Mars and to search for signs of organic compounds.
lander image comes from Sept. 23. MRO's HiRise camera took a gander at the lander in December 2018, but this new look is crisper and cleaner thanks to less dust floating in the air and better lighting.
Take a close look at this picture and you can even make out the lander's twin solar arrays.
InSight doesn't roll around like Curiosity. Its science mission involves listening for marsquakes and sending a heat probe down into the ground. That heat probe, known as the "mole," got stuck shortly after deployment. A recent effort to use the lander's arm to help the mole get a grip on the soil seems to be helping.
The InSight lander is bigger than a typical full-size car, while Curiosity is smaller, more like a dainty hatchback. They're still tiny compared with the landscape of Mars. That makes these latest MRO images all the more impressive.
