MAHLI Image From Mars

 
 
 
 
 
This image of a U.S. penny was acquired Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) aboard NASA's Curiosity rover in northern Gale crater on Mars. At 14 micrometers per pixel, this is the highest resolution image that the MAHLI can acquire.
 
The image shows that, during the penny's 14 months (so far) on Mars, it has accumulated Martian dust and clumps of dust, despite its vertical mounting position.
