This Is the Coolest Self Portrait of Curiosity You Will See Maybe Ever

If the Curiosity rover had an OKCupid profile picture, this awesome self portrait would totally be it. Thanks to its reflective surfaces and rotating turret arm, the Curiosity rover can photograph itself as it travels across Mars, which would seem kind of self-absorbed if it weren’t so utterly fantastic. This picture, which is a mosaic of 55 images stitched together brilliantly by NASA technicians, was taken just yesterday.

You can check out the latest images from the rover at NASA, as always, and you can get a look at a very preliminary 3D version of this image over at UnmannedSpaceFlight.com.
