Description
English: Computer generated image from MOLA data, showing daybreak on Gale crater of Mars, as it would appear from space. Gale crater is the crater with a mound inside it near the center of the image and will be the landing site of the Mars Science Laboratory in August 2012.
Ελληνικά: Εικόνα δημιουργημένη σε υπολογιστή. Χαραυγή στον Άρη, στην περιοχή του κρατήρα Γκέιλ. Ο Γκέιλ είναι ο κρατήρας με το ύψωμα στο εσωτερικό του, κοντά στο κέντρο της εικόνας, και είναι το μέρος όπου θα προσεδαφιστεί το Mars Science Laboratory της NASA τον Αύγουστο του 2012.


Original caption

This computer-generated view depicts part of Mars at the boundary between darkness and daylight, with an area including Gale Crater beginning to catch morning light.

Northward is to the left. Gale is the crater with a mound inside it near the center of the image. NASA has selected Gale as the landing site for the Mars Science Laboratory mission. The mission's rover will be placed on the ground in a northern portion of Gale crater in August 2012.

Gale crater is 96 miles (154 kilometers) in diameter and holds a layered mountain rising about 3 miles (5 kilometers) above the crater floor. The intended landing site is at 4.5 degrees south latitude, 137.4 degrees east longitude.

This view was created using three-dimensional information from the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter, which flew on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter. The vertical dimension is not exaggerated. Color information is based on general Mars color characteristics.

The Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter was operated by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, managed the Mars Global Surveyor and now manages the Mars Science Laboratory for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
