Wind-Blown Martian Sand: Two images from the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover show the upper portion of a wind-blown deposit dubbed "Rocknest." Curiosity took a scoop of soil from an area out of frame. The soil was analyzed with the Chemin instrument. The colors in the left image are unedited, showing the scene as it is on Mars.The image at right has been white-balanced to show what the same area would look like under natural light on Earth.
