This composite image, with magnified insets, depicts the first laser test by the ChemCam instrument aboard NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars. The composite incorporates a Navigation Camera image taken prior to the test, with insets taken by the camera in ChemCam. The circular insert highlights the rock before the laser test. The square inset is further magnified and processed to show the difference between images taken before and after the laser interrogation of the rock. The test took place on Aug. 19, 2012.
