As Mars emerges from passing nearly behind the sun, NASA has resumed full operations fo the Curiosity rover, which has reached a site where at least two rock types meet.

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is examining a valley where at least two types of bedrock meet, for clues about changes in ancient environmental conditions recorded by the rock.

In addition to two rock types for which this site was chosen, the rover has found a sandstone with grains of differing...

A view from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 8, 2015, catches sight of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover passing through a valley called "Artist's Drive" on the lower slope of Mount Sharp.

The image from the orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera shows the rover's position after a drive of about 75 feet (23 meters) during the 949th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars.

The location of the rover, with its shadow extending toward...

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover has climbed uphill from an outcrop it studied for six months and found a site with two-tone mineral veins forming "ice-cream sandwich" ridges.

Fast Facts:
-- Exposed mineral veins at "Garden City" tell of a wet environment after lake-bed deposits became rock
-- Drilled sample from "Telegraph Peak" contains cristobalite, a silica mineral

wo-tone mineral veins at a site...
