Seen From Space: Curiosity’s Abandoned Parachute Still Flapping in the Wind on Mars


NASA’s Mars machines continue to work in beautiful tandem as seen in this image, where the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera captured the changing conditions of the landing parachute that brought the Curiosity rover safely to the ground nine months ago.

We’ve already seen lots of parts of Curiosity’s mission from space. HiRISE has snapped incredible images of the rover’s nail-biting descent, the scar marks left on the Martian surface from its ballast masses, and even its tracks on the ground as it explored habitable conditions in Mars’ past.
