Opportunity's Images

Opportunity has returned images different from any rover before it. It shows a dark, surreal landscape. "Opportunity has touched down in a bizarre, alien landscape," said Dr. Steve Squyres, principal investigator for the science instruments on Opportunity and Spirit. "I'm flabbergasted. I'm astonished. I'm blown away." The area has exposed bedrock, the first candidate for the rover to explore. Unlike Spirit, the path in front of the rover looks clear for it to roll off.
