Opportunity update - still going
While the Curiosity rover tests out its array of instruments, the long-lived Opportunity rover just keeps going and contributing to our knowledge of Mars. It's checking out a region called 'Matijevic Hill'. Still trying to find clay minerals, I think.
Survey of Matijevic Hill continues
Here's a recent picture from the place.
There's also a stereo picture (need the blue-red glasses for it)
Also from Mars, a stunning image from the Mars Express orbiter of the Nereidium Montes region:
