Mars Curiosity Rover Snaps High-Res Self-Portrait

, , , , ,


NASA’s Curiosity rover shot its first high-resolution self-portrait two days after landing in Mars’s Gale Crater on Aug. 7.

The images, however, were not released until a press conference Friday. The shot is composed of 20 navigation images, in which you can see the back of the rover, a few wheels, and debris on the rover.

Are you impressed by Curiosity’s first self-portrait or do you prefer these earlier shots released by NASA?
