NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover is now wrapping up Sol 2127 dutes.

Meanwhile, a new Curiosity Mars rover traverse map through Sol 2126 has been issued.

The map shows the route driven by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity through the 2126 Martian day, or sol, of the rover’s mission on Mars (July 30, 2018).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. The scale bar is 1 kilometer (~0.62 mile).

From Sol 2120 to Sol 2126, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 225.30 feet (68.67 meters), bringing the rover’s total odometry for the mission to 12.14 miles (19.54 kilometers).

The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
