Alien Landscape With Crater

If you were navigating NASA's Perseverence Rover on the surface of Mars, where in the following picture would tell it to drill for signs of life? And would you fly its mini-helicopter into the approaching dust storms or ground it until the storms have passed?

But this isn't Mars, it's old, dried paint on a stick. Taken with K3 + Laowa 25mm macro @ 4x magnification, 100 image stack processed by Affinity Photo.

Thoughts, comments welcome as usual (please do not contact NASA...).

Nicely done, Steve!
And was this 100 x 1/24th. mm.?

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Thanks. Yes, it was 100 x 1/24th mm, so 1 degree turn of the protractor between shots. Needed to resolve details of the crater, its diameter is much less than 1mm. The most difficult thing wasn't the taking of the stack, it was manoeuvring a big stick into a rig that's set up for small things. Taking 100 shots was just a bit boring...

Nicely kind of shot (together with vivid imagination!)...not that i've ever tried 'stacking' as my very old PC would take days to do the processing.

My favourite 'interpretation' of NASA acronym...Never A Straight Answer

Certainly looks like a alien landscape with a crater on it!
