Mars Rover Curiosity sent earthlings a selfie

NASA scientists received a selfie from the Mars Rover Curiosity; the image was recreated based on 57 photos taken on the red planet in late October and then sent to Earth.

The selfie was taken in the Mary Anning area, a place named after a British researcher who collected fossils.

The object was photographed by a camera placed on a special robotic arm. During the 8 years that the Rover spent on the red planet, its wheels were covered with dust, and other elements of the body also show traces of the influence of the aggressive environment.

Curiosity arrived on Mars in August 2012. The United States also launched a new mission to Mars in July 2020 – the Perseverance Rover went to the red planet.
