Mt Sharp: Postcard From Mars

Mt Sharp:  Postcard From Mars

Curiosity, NASA’s latest Mars rover, successfully landed in Gale crater, earlier this week.  The Mars rover already sent back a postcard perfect picture of Mt. Sharp (picture, left).  Mt.Sharp rises 18,000 ft above Martian surface.  A comparison provided (picture, right) shows Mt. Sharp would inspire if located on Earth as it towers higher than Mt. Rainier.   The NASA team will learn to operate SUV-sized Mars rover for next 90 Martian days, according to WashPO story.
