+ - Curiosity Snaps its First Color Photo of Mars->

astroengine writes "This was the view from NASA's Mars Science Laboratory during the afternoon of the first day that rover Curiosity successfully touched down on the Martian surface at 1:32 a.m. ET, Monday. The view shows the north wall of the rim of Gale Crater and the image was acquired by Curiosity's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). But why is it so murky? For the first observation, the dust cover was, sensibly, kept closed. The cover will be removed in the coming days."
