Curiosity rover takes new selfie on Mars

Mon, Dec 08, 2014, 03:07 PM
New York, Dec 8: NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has posted a new selfie taken on a sandstone outcrop in the Kimberley region of Mars.

Curiosity took dozens of images over many months that were later combined into a self-portrait, ABC reported Sunday.

The Gale crater where the photo was taken is made of sandstone layers exposed to wind erosion over thousands of years.

The frame does not include the rover's arm which took the pictures.

The background images of this selfie were taken on the 613th day of the rover's stay on the Red Planet in April this year.

Now, over 800 Martian days after landing, Curiosity carrying the Mars Science Laboratory, continues on its extraordinary journey across landscapes that are both utterly alien and remarkably familiar.
