Mars rover Curiosity - 1909 Penny on Mars

Recommended Posts



Martian dust appears on the surface of a penny in a photo by the Mars Hand Lens Imager aboard NASA's Curiosity rover on October 2. The image of the 1909 coin is at the highest resolution possible for the high-powered camera -- 14 micrometers per pixel (a micrometer is about .000039 inches).
