CRAIC in Science

See an Eye-Popping Selfie From Mars | There is a Life-like Movement There Like Outside of Supermac’s


The Curiosity rover sends a self-portrait home

Nothing on Mars comes easy—and that includes the straightforward business of taking a selfie. The Curiosity rover has been trundling through the Martian dunes for three and a half years now, and since its first day on the job it’s been beaming home eye-popping images of the rusty plain, peaks and boulder fields that surround it.

What it does less well is photograph itself. Most of the images of all of America’s Mars ships at work have been accidental—a wheel tread or sample scoop that sneaks into the frame as the craft captures a larger, more scientifically important picture.
