Mars’ Gale crater, spanning 96 miles (154 kilometers) in diameter, sits a few degrees south of the Martian equator. Rising from Gale’s center is Mount Sharp, a 3-mile-high (5 km) mountain of layered sediment. Studying the rocks and soil here could reveal if Mars was ever capable of supporting life.
