I really like those selfies, but got to wondering how it actually took those pics. :thinking: Seems I wasn’t alone:

This makes perfect sense, though the idea of conspiracy theorists seeing this as proof that there is no Rover on Mars is an amusing one.

This is my favorite pic of the set:

The concept of a rover being designed to take pictures of its own inspections is just so cool. It’s an obvious need, but imagine the engineering that went into that. Awesome.

Did everyone know that Mars is believed to be the only planet fully equipped with only robots?

This is how they will take over

This panorama combines 83 exposures taken by the rover’s Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the Sol 2082 of Curiosity’s work on Mars (June 15, 2018)

A Martian dust storm has reduced sunlight and visibility at the rover’s location in Gale Crater.

I was scrolling down the thumbnails and I had to stop to read what looked in passing to be a photo of “Bitchin Dunes.” :stuck_out_tongue:
