NASA’s Perseverance rover has traveled to strange and intriguing Martian terrain.

On Sunday (June 12), the size of a car Perseverance took a photo that could be mistaken for a still from an “Indiana Jones” movie. To the left of the painting, a boulder perches precariously on a slab of gray rock. And in the center right, a formation that looks a lot like an open-mouthed serpent’s head juts out from a layered reddish knoll.
