Curiosity Rover Takes an Incredible Self-Portrait
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Wow, what a view of the Curiosity rover — a self-portrait mosaic made from brand new images taken by the MAHLI (Mars Hand Lens Imager), the high-resolution camera located on the turret at the end of the MSL robotic arm. The arm was moved for each of the 55 images in this mosaic, so the arm isn’t visible. This mosaic was put together by Stuart Atkinson, and he notes that these images are just the low-res thumbnail images that have just been sent to Earth. “Imagine what the hi-res version will look like!!” Stu said.We can’t wait. Here’s looking at you, Curiosity!© nancy for Universe Today, 2012. | Permalink | No comment | Post tags: Curiosity Rover, Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Curiosity Rover Feed enhanced by Better Feed from Ozh
