Curiosity%u2019s Official Self-Portrait - How-To Geek. Normally, there is something creepy about taking a photo of yourself. However, in the case of Curiosity, I will make an exception. Curiosity is on a Sunday stroll on Mars, and this is a view taken by its robot arm. Pretty cool the way the arm has been edited out by Curiosity, and all the photos stiched together to get a feel for Martian landscape. Now, I am waiting for Rock Hudson to come into view interviewing a Martian. Wouldn't you rather be there than watching election returns?
