Curiosity recently snapped several new photographs of desolate Martian landscapes, including a spectacular view of the Martian horizon from a vantage point at Gale Crater.
The image taken on November 1 is one of many photos taken from the rover and published on the space agency's website, and some are much more interesting than others.
The photos taken by the rover are part of Curiosity's mission to give scientists as much information as possible about Mars. The area is especially interesting, as scientists believe Gale Crater was covered with lakes and rivers of liquid water about three billion years ago. This makes it the perfect place for Curiosity to dig in for hints of microbial life.
Right now, Curiosity is sending information to Earth about the chemical composition of various rocks and environmental conditions in the area.
Curiosity remained the only rover roaming the red planet after NASA lost contact with Opportunity during a dust storm. The end of the mission was announced in February this year, and the rover had been on Mars for 15 years.
