Here Are The 30 Best Photos That NASA’s Curiosity Has Taken After 7 Years On Mars

Here’s how Curiosity looked 7 years ago and now

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.

Since it is approaching the 8-year mark since landing on the distant planet, Curiosity has managed to collect a rather impressive gallery of photographs through the years. The images give an impressively high-quality look at the red planet and its surface, ranging from dusty planes to rocky mountains.
