Martian sand below Mr. Lincoln's ear

Why a 1909 Lincoln? Easy: NASA thought the launch would be in 2009, the centennial of the introduction of the Lincoln penny. I often think the penny should be phased out, but it is a great coin, thanks to the dignified profile of Abe, and especially back in the day of the beautiful wheaty tail side.

Photos from Curiosity... wow...
