An attraction with a few types of landscapes that come together is NASA's next mission for its Mars Curiosity Rover.

Staff did not previously know anything about the sight, but now have a better idea Space.com.

"The orbital images didn't tell us what those rocks are, but now that Curiosity is getting closer, we're seeing a preview," Curiosity deputy project scientist Ashwin Vasavada, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif., said in a statement.

The Curiosity Rover weighs a ton, and is 282 feet away or the equivalent of 86 meters away from its next attraction, Kimberley.

NASA employees controlling the rover are prepared to examine the rocks at the site, and could also use a drill to gather samples of data according to NASA officials Space.com reported.

NASA's second rover on the red planet had a very long journey on the red planet, landing last August to begin taking in its air and further investigating its certain aspects BBC News reported.

It has dealt with a sand dune, and also come across two kinds of argon gas in argon 36, and argon 38. Curiosity was able to find these through its Sample Analysis at Mars tool (SAM) a press release reported. The Rover discovered rare meteorites through its Sample Analysis at Mars tool in October the American Geophysical Union reported in a press release.

The rover came across a mysterious rock the size of a jelly doughnut Jan. 16, a couple feet in front of it as part of its already storied past according to Discovery News.

Rhawn Joseph, a neuroscientist and astrobiologist reportedly filed a lawsuit in United States District Court against the administration because he wanted NASA to photograph different parts of the rock, and do a full examination, and then tell the public what they found The Sky Valley Chronicle reported.
