CURIOSITY snaps its first self-portrait on Mars. Space swoon!

Now Curiosity is just showing off. It is all on the Red Planet, having fun. Living the Bradbury dream. Now it is sending back total profile pictures of itself to post on the FaceSpace and shit. Not fair.


Check out Curiosity’s amazing new self-portrait — a high-resolution mosaic of 55 images taken by its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). The rover is looking good, though a bit dusty. In the background to the right there’s Aeolis Mons (or Mount Sharp), and to the left you can also see that Curiosity has been doing some digging.
