Mars Rover Has The Ultimate Selfie Stick

The rover has used its robotic arm to take selfies on Mars

NASA has released a series of new images of the Curiosity Rover that were snapped by the rover itself using its robotic arm.

The selfies were taken atop the “Buckskin” rock formation where the rover collected some Martian soil.

August marks the third anniversary of the rover landing on the surface of the Red Planet. The rover has helped scientists discover that Mars likely could have once supported life.

We can look forward to more selfies from the rover as it climbs Mount Sharp at the centre of Mars’ Gale Crater.
