The vivid photo shows Curiosity nestled within the “Namib Dune,” a region where the rover had been collecting sand samples for lab analysis.
“The rover has been investigating a group of active sand dunes for two months, studying how the wind moves and sorts sand particles on Mars,” NASA explained in a statement on their website.
