What do you think of this incredible selfie by Mars Science Lab (MSL) Curiosity which was taken on SOL 613 (SOL’s are Mars days which are slightly longer than Earths.)? Taken as a series of 60-ish separate large file images and stitched together this photo when viewed full size is an amazing experience. The detail in the martial landscape jumps out at you clear as if you were there yourself taking the image. The detail in Curiosity herself is also unparalleled as you can see the rusty dust coat now covering the entire machine. Also if you look at the middle wheel you can spot a hole in it. Anyway, take your time, have a look around mars and go check out Doug’s pages especially for the 28mb version of this image….enjoy.
