Gale Crater
Mon Sep 12, 2016 6:00am


Gale Crater is almost 7,000 square miles in area, roughly the same size as Connecticut and Rhode Island combined. Given that, I don't think they were at all concerned about accidently getting too close to a handful of streaks. I would love for them to be able to investigate these features but they are only present on slopes too steep for the lander to traverse.

    No streaks at Gale Crater. Why would they land at a crater with streaks if they are avoiding all water. They didn't.
