Selbstporträt vom Mars-Rover Curiosity

Die NASA hat ein Selbstporträt von ihrem Mars-Rover Curiosity veröffentlicht. Zwar sind auf dem aus 55 Thumbnails zusammengesetzten Foto mal wieder keine Marsbewohner mit drauf, trotzdem finde ich Roboter-Fotos vom Mars jedes Mal wieder total faszinierend:
This self-portrait documents the state of the rover and allows mission engineers to track changes over time, such as dust accumulation and wheel wear ... The mosaic shows the rover at "Rocknest," the spot in Gale Crater where the mission's first scoop sampling took place. Scoop scars can be seen in the regolith in front of the rover. A portion of Mount Sharp appears on the right side. Mountains in the background to the left are the northern wall of Gale Crater. When the rover returns the full-resolution MAHLI frames of the scene, the team plans to generate a more detailed portrait of Curiosity in its Martian neighborhood.
