Curiosity Rover's Self Portrait at "Windjana" Drilling Site

Everybody’s doing selfies: Curiosity’s Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) took frames on Sol 613 (April 27, 2014).

Windjana is a possible target for drilling on a sandstone outcrop at Mount Remarkable.

The rover's robotic arm is not visible in the mosaic. MAHLI, which took the component images for this mosaic, is mounted on a turret at the end of the arm. Wrist motions and turret rotations on the arm allowed MAHLI to acquire the mosaic's component images. The arm was positioned out of the shot in the images or portions of images used in the mosaic. Please check video explanation by NASA:

The images for full panorama obtained by the rover's 34-millimeter Mast Camera. The mosaic, which stretches about 30,000 pixels width, includes 138 images taken on Sol 610.

    Как минимум две странные фигуры (я их назвал "горцы") идут по тропам вдали по горам...

    Солнце нарисовано. Сфотографировать его в зените - это убить фотокамеру.

    I believe he was asking for personal use. Unless you have an app compatible with the oculus rift...

    There is a camera on the arm of the rover you can't see the arm, it's basically a selfie.

    If the robot is in the shot who's taking the picture?

    I still find it amazing that there's a little robot cruising around mars, snapping photos.

    Is there a way to get this as a flat image so I can view it with the Oculus Rift?
