According to the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter of NASA (Nasa) has taken a photo of the Curiosity Rover (Mount Curiosity Rover) climbing Mont Mercou, near the center of the Gale Crater. MRO took this photo on 18 April using its High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Tool (HiRISE), which is capable of seeing even the smallest things.
According to information from the HiRISE team, the curiosity rover of the car was clearly visible from the height of 167.5 miles from the rover. Since 2014, Curiosity Rover has been climbing the 3-mile-high Mount Sharp, the central peak of the Gayle Crater. Its mission is to search for past signs of microbial life on the red planet.
Rover searching for mont marco
In early March Curiosity began to climb Mont Marco, which is named after a mountain in France. In its first two years on Mars, Curiosity confirmed that the Gayle Crater was a lake filled with chemical ingredients suitable for life. After this Curiosity has detected organic matter and discovered evidence that small, salty ponds remained when Mars dried up.

In the coming years Curiosity will reveal more mysteries about Mars’ past as it explores Mont Marco. Abigail Freeman, deputy project scientist at the Curiosity of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, said in a video update that there are sulfate hills just ahead of Mont Marco, so we’re moving forward.
Very close to finding salt
The US space agency NASA’s Curiosity rover is very close to finding salt on the surface of Mars. From which it will be known whether there was life on the red planet in ancient times or not. Scientists at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center located in Greenbelt, Maryland are studying photographs and data collected by Rover. From which they have found that this can happen on Mars, organic or carbon-rich salt is present. Which the agency has described as an organic compound of organic compounds.
