this week, the Mars rover Curiosity is humming its way across the pebbly surface of Yellowknife, leaving behind Peace Vallis and Hottah, and motoring through Gale Crater through a geologic region called Glenelg.

Most places on Mars are named for geologic features on Earth, but sometimes there's a larger connection--like Glenelg.
