Sol 2695: Just a short drive / climb, but a very welcome one to get all 6 wheels off the slope and onto the top of the pediment smile.gif
Roughly stitched L-NavCam partial pan using MS-ICE with the available images. I'm sure the full 360 will be memorable...

BTW: maybe a good time for a new thread? (Traversing the Greenheugh Pediment?) smile.gif

Some context shots with a roughly scaled Curiosity perched on the edge of Greenheugh...

Stunning, Sean. ohmy.gif

Re new thread: Yeah, possibly. That's Emily's call, though; she's been most carefully curating the journey of MSL here. smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I feel like Lawrence of Arabia fumbling for his binoculars after his guide Tafas shouts "Bedu" - WHERE?

Greenheugh pediment looks like its going to be a rough traverse for the rover. What does the pediment represent?

Julius: "Greenheugh pediment looks like its going to be a rough traverse for the rover. What does the pediment represent?"

Not sure, but you might find this LPSC abstract interesting:

https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2020/pdf/2337.pdf


Originally the pediment was interpreted as an alluvial fan, sediment swept down Gediz Vallis by flowing water, but that's not the prevailing view at the moment.

Here's an abstract from 2019 showing in Fig. 4 a projection from the Greenheugh to the Stimson.

How do you pronounce "Greenheugh"? (Not evident for a French speaker.)
