NASA's Curiosity Rover Snaps Selfie On Mars

NASA's Curiosity Rover is currently trekking across Mars collecting samples and performing tests, and it turns out, snapping selfies! Curiosity is currently exploring a stretch of sand dunes to help scientists better understand wind patters on Mars. While collecting samples, the rover was able to snap a selfie using its built in selfie stick! The selfie is made possible by combining 57 separate photos from the Mars Hand Lens Imager camera. This camera is located at the end of a long arm. Think of it as the rover's personal selfie stick. The images were taken on January 19 and NASA released the completed selfie compilation last week.
