The Mars Descent Imager for NASA's Mars Science Laboratory took this image inside the Malin Space Science Systems clean room in San Diego, Calif., during calibration testing of the camera in June 2008.
Test Image by Mars Descent Imager
Full Resolution
This image was taken in the clean room where the Curiosity rover is being assembled. It shows the rover, which is about the size of an SUV, hoisted on a white lift, with its black wheels suspended in the air. One engineer is on top of the hoist and is leaning over the rover body, while another is looking up on the ground floor to the right of the rover. Both engineers are wearing white "bunny suits" to keep them from contaminating any equipment.
Wheels Spinning
Full Resolution
In this picture, the Curiosity rover is sitting on top of six shiny wheels. The picture was taken from the side of the rover and only four wheels are visible. The wheels have a black coating which makes them slip resistant. On the right of the rover is an engineer who is wearing a white 'bunny suit' to prevent him from getting any unwanted Earth microbes onto the rover. The engineer is holding one of the lift cables used to put the rover onto the wheels. A pink heavy-lift crane is visible over the rover. The crane is used to lift the rover body within the room. Behind the rover, lots of lab equipment and other parts are scattered around the cleanroom.
Wheel Installation
Full Resolution
In the middle of this image, three wheels are shown raised by a lift, with engineers on both sides of the wheels in the cleanroom, where the Curiosity rover is being assembled. The wheels are made out of aluminum but have a black coating, which prevents the wheels from slipping. The wheels are attached to dark poles, which bend like 'joints.' Several black and red cable wires are visible coming out of the poles. An engineer stands in the background holding a clipboard and looking closely at the rover. A desk and various tools are visible behind the wheels on the right.

The team developing NASA's Mars Science Laboratory calls this test rover "Scarecrow" because the vehicle does not include a computer brain. Mobility engineers use this test rover to evaluate mobility and suspension performance.
