Ripples On Surface Of Martian Sand Dune

From Sojourner to Spirit, from Opportunity to Curiosity, humanity tried and succeeded to reach and explore the surface of Mars, a meaningful step in our journey to one day leave a human print on another planet. As its predecessors’ missions ended, with Oppy shutting down in 2018, the only Mars rover left on the planet was Curiosity, the little machine that’s been trekking over the wasteland and examining it for nearly 8 years.
