NASA Mars rover snaps 'self-photo'
This Picasso-like self portrait of NASA's Curiosity rover,
released by NASA August 8, 2012, was taken by its Navigation cameras,
located on the now-upright mast.
The camera snapped pictures 360-degrees around the rover, while pointing down at the rover deck, up and straight ahead. Those images are shown here in a polar projection. Most of the tiles are thumbnails, or small copies of the full-resolution images that have not been sent back to Earth yet.
