Mars Curiosity Rover self portrait picture from Gale Crater

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has sent back a high-res photo of itself in the Gale crater on Mars. The image was taken by Curiosity’s MAHLI hand held camera which sits on the end of the rover’s extendable arm. MAHLI took a total of 55 pictures which were stitched together to create the stunning hi-res self portrait.

Note that in the background is 3-mile-high Mount Sharp which Curiosity will be climbing in a few years.
