For the past few days Curiosity has been very busy snapping photos of her new Martian home and sharing them with her earthling fans. And now that the rover’s nearly 4-foot-tall mast equipped with high-resolution cameras has been raised, the robot has even turned the spotlight on her one-ton, six-wheeled-self.
Curiosity’s navigation cameras on the mast took pictures all the way around the rover and stitched these images together to get the self-portrait below. It’s not perfect (NASA calls it “Picasso-like“), but still very cool.
