Via Youtube: September 13th Mars Curiosity Rover Report

————————–

They’re still heading to Mt. Sharp,  driving the rover 400 meters toward Glenelg:

‘Sol 38 (Sept. 13, 2012) was destined to be a driving day for NASA’s latest edition to the Martian landscape. Curiosity perambulated over 105 feet (32 meters) of unpaved Gale Crater during yesterday’s drive. The rover’s odometer now clocks in at 466 feet (142 meters) covered since the landing on Aug. 5.’

More pics here.  A composite color view.

Addition:  Carbon-dioxide ice on the south pole falling from clouds.
