During the Sol 2170 Curiosity has attempted to drill a rock called Inverness, unfortunately proved too hard for its capabilities.
In this photo you can see the result of the drilling attempt during the same Sol and two days later for comparison. You can thus compare them and note the effects of wind on the excavated material and not only.
Note also the difference in color between the surface of the rock and the excavated material…
The photos presented here have been subjected to white balance and a slight increase in contrast to make the color vision more similar to that of the human eye.
