coondoggie writes “It has been years in the making but NASA said its Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has captured a new view of the rim of the planet’s Endeavour crater, perhaps the rover’s ultimate destination. The Mars rover set out for Endeavour in September 2008 after spending two years exploring the Victoria crater. NASA says Endeavour is 13 miles across, some 25 times wider than Victoria crater, and could offer scientists more insight into the red planet’s make-up.”
