Submission + - Curiosity Snaps 'Arm's Length' Self Portrait (

astroengine writes: "Using its robotic arm-mounted MAHLI camera, NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has snapped, quite possibly, the most iconic image to come from the mission so far. By stitching together 55 high-resolution photos, the rover has snapped an "arm's length" self portrait, capturing its location in the geologically interesting area known as "Rocknest", including its recent scoop marks in the Martian soil and the base of Mt. Sharp."
