Curiosity’s Self Portrait

One space enthusiast couldn’t wait for NASA to release an official on-Mars portrait of the rover Curiosity, so he took 55 partial self-portraits sent back by the rover and stitched them all together into the first complete on-planet photo we’ve seen of Curiosity.

Courtesy of Stuart Atkinson, the photos are stitched together from images collected over the initial portion of Curiosity’s mission. Hit up the link below to check out the full size image.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    What if he found a mirror on Mars and took the photo!

    Appreciate the work. Stunning image!

    I thought we sent it there to take photos of MARS. It could have taken facebook profile pics for itself here on Earth…

    If it takes a mirrored photo of itself, I sure hope it makes the duck-lips-face. That’s so attractive.
