Art Mars Rovers
This image provided by NASA, shows rover tracks disappearing toward the horizon in a sea of sand between the craters Endurance and Victoria on the Meridiani Plains. Mars rover Opportunity took the image while stuck in the sand ripple dubbed Purgatory for over a month. Ten years after NASA landed two rovers on Mars on a 90-day mission, one rover is still exploring, and the project has generated hundreds of thousands of images from the Martian surface. Now the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is presenting more than 50 of the best photographs from the two Mars rovers in an art exhibit curated by the scientists who have led the ongoing mission.
