Why it was worth sending a rover to Gale Crater on Mars – lesson from the Amalfi Coast in Italy

This photos shows erosion in action on this island – like tje central peak in the martian Gale Crater, layers of rock are visible – the lower ones must have been laid down before the higher ones allowing a rover to sample different geological ages as it climbs the central mountain of the crater.
