This rectangular version of a self-portrait of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity combines dozens of exposures taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the 177th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (Feb. 3, 2013).
On 5 August NASA successfully landed its rover, Curiosity, on Mars. Since landing, the rover has captured some striking images of the red planet. In this Nature video, NASA scientists John Grotzinger and Joy Crisp talk about what we've seen so far, and what we might encounter when Curiosity drives towards Mount Sharp -- where we hope to find signs of water.

This color-enhanced view shows the terrain around the rover's landing site within Gale Crater on Mars. It was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
MARS: View from Curiosity via 100mm MAST Camera on 8/12/12. The gravelly area around Curiosity's landing site is visible in the foreground. Then, about a third of the way up from the bottom of the image, the terrain falls off into a depression (a swale), beyond which, in the middle of the image, is the boulder-strewn, red-brown rim of a moderately-sized impact crater. In the distance, there are dark dunes and then the layered rock at the base of Mount Sharp 16.2km away. #Curiosity #NASA
