Curiosity is currently examining a potential drilling operation on Mars known as "The Kimberly Waypoint."
Named after a remote region of Australia, this major stopping waypoint has been planned since early 2013 for closer study of the Red Planet's rocks. New imagery from the region will be examined as scientists determine potential drilling missions.
Kimberly is an important area because it lies at the intersection of four different types of rocks. The area originally piqued scientists' interests after being examined by the telescopic cameras aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
