<p>
The figure below shows the location of the ten science instruments on the
rover. There are four categories of instruments: the remote sensing
instruments Mastcam (Mast Camera) and ChemCam (Laser-Induced Breakdown
Spectroscopy for Chemistry and Microimaging) located on the remote sensing
mast; the contact science instruments APXS (Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer)
and MAHLI (Mars Hand Lens Imager) located on the end of the robotic arm; the
analytical laboratory instruments CheMin (Chemistry and Mineralogy) and SAM
(Sample Analysis at Mars) located inside the rover body; and the environmental
instruments RAD (Radiation Assessment Detector), DAN (Dynamic Albedo of
Neutrons), REMS (Rover Environmental Monitoring Station), and MARDI (Mars
Descent Imager).
