Mars – or Arrakis?

The Mars Science Laboratory CURIOSITY is now on the edge of a frankly magnificent field of dust dunes, and the images coming back are beautiful. Anyone who has read the DUNE books, or seen the film, or the TV series, must look at them and wonder if a sandworm is going to break through the tops of the dunes any moment…

Here’s a mosaic I made from three individual images… can’t wait to see this view in colour…
