So: Glenelg. It's actually named for a site in Canada's Northwest Territories, as are most of the objects Curiosity has been checking out. Before the rover arrived, its potential landing area was divided into quadrangles one mile on each side, Crisp explained. They were each named for interesting geologic formations, rock outcrops or mineral sites on Earth. Curiosity landed in the Yellowknife quadrangle, which is a city in Canada that serves as a launch pad for geologic expeditions. So everything that warrants a name inside Yellowknife gets a name associated with Yellowknife, Crisp said. The rover team liked the Yellowknife connection because the Northwest Territories are home to ancient, exposed rocks that can provide clues about the early Earth--just like Curiosity is trying to do on Mars.
